Excess or normal 5α-reductase activity in the skin determines the presence or absence of hirsutism [12]. Additionally, estrone plasma levels, a weak estrogen with biological activity 100 times less than estradiol, are increased as a result of the peripheral conversion of androstenedione by aromatase activity, which is more active in PCOS than in healthy controls, while estradiol levels are normal or low because of the frequent anovulatory cycles. All this results in a chronic hyperestrogenic state with the reversal of the estrone:estradiol ratio that may predispose to endometrial proliferation and to a possible increased risk of endometrial cancer [13, 14].
