    TLDR Finasteride significantly reduces hair growth in women with idiopathic hirsutism.
    The study evaluated the effectiveness of finasteride in treating idiopathic hirsutism in women. The treatment was well-tolerated and resulted in a significant reduction in hair growth. Finasteride may be an effective treatment option for idiopathic hirsutism. The study found that finasteride was effective in reducing hirsutism in 14 female patients with no reported side effects. The improvement was observed after 6 months of therapy, suggesting that increased 5α-reductase activity may play a role in excessive hair growth in idiopathic hirsutism. The study suggests that adequate contraception is necessary when using finasteride.
