PMID:  2819797     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of recurrent androgenicity associated with pregnancy is described. The patient is a 32-year-old black woman with hirsutism and irregular menses who developed elevated androgen levels in the male range during a pregnancy, with remission after delivery. A recurrence of the elevated androgen levels was noted during a subsequent pregnancy, again with remission after a termination. We have analyzed the possible etiologic mechanisms underlying this condition and reviewed the literature of similar cases.
