The doctors described the rare case of hair growth inside the human mouth

In some cases, hair may grow in the mouth

According to statistics, more than 75% of Russia's population suffer from problems of hair. Most of us over time and fall out, but in the world there are people who suffer from their excess. Especially a lot of inconvenience to a large number of hair on head and face gives women. In science an excessive amount of vegetation on the body is called hirsutism, and the reason for this phenomenon is the excess in the body of male hormones. As a rule, excess vegetation appears only on covering our body is the skin, but in very rare cases, hair can also grow on the gums. On one of these occasions, recently told Italian researchers from the University of the Campaign "Luigi Vanvitelli".

About an unusual medical case was described in a scientific publication . It happened in 2009, when doctors mentioned above, the University turned 19-year-old Italian with a very unusual complaint. According to her, in between her teeth began to grow hair, which bothered her while eating and generally caused discomfort. In the patient's examination the doctor actually found in her mouth similar to cilia hairs and ultimately decided that dealing with the so-called hirsutism gums.

Unable to grow hair on the gums?

After reviewing the medical literature, the doctors found that since 1960-ies of the hair growth on the gums was identified only five people. It is noteworthy that all of them were men. As researchers it is unknown how many people in history suffered from hirsutism gum, which came to them Italian can be considered the first girl with such an anomaly. Cause hair growth on the mucous membrane of the mouth, the doctors thought hormone imbalance, so hair removed by surgery and sent the patient hormones.

Most Likely assigned to treatment method the girl really helped, because she had not appealed to the staff of the Institute for as much as six years. However, when she stopped taking her prescribed pills, hair growth on the gums resumed and she was back in the hospital. On that occasion, the doctor decided to examine her gums under a microscope and saw that cloth of the girl is denser than normal and they do make their way through these hair shafts.

Growing hair, discovered in the mouth of the patient

The Researchers suggested that because the tissue of the oral mucosa closely associated with tissues that form our skin in the embryonic period of development, the possibility of hair growth in the oral cavity could be activated at the girl still in the womb. However, to test this theory scientists have been unable, therefore, to the question of which people are susceptible to hair growth on the gums, they are not able to answer.

As for the Italians, whose identity is kept secret, she was prescribed another course of drugs. It is known that two years after admission, she again went to the hospital with complications. The unusual fate of the patient is unknown, but I would like to know whether it was possible for her to recover and was influenced by whether the hair in her mouth on the health of other organs.
