Hyperandrogenism accounts for a number of distressing symptoms in the patient. Evaluation of the underlying cause is the key to the correct management of this common endocrine disorder. In this review, we analyse hyperandrogenism in terms of pathophysiology, evaluation and management options for the patient. Various Pubmed studies spanning multiple decades have been studied and evaluated in order to formulate an algorithm for diagnosis of the causes of hyperandrogenism and also to devise a management protocol for the same. The myriad underlying causes of hyperandrogenism make it imperative to have a detailed understanding of its pathophysiology so as to more effectively treat it.
