Hypertrichosis

There are several classifications of hypertrichosis. Subtle differences, but there are. Some appear later in life, some don't make hair grow on your body at all, and some just make you a very hairy infant.


Hypertrichosis, despite the forms, have one thing consistent. They all alter hair in some shape or form.

Hypertrichosis transmittance

Hypertrichosis is a dominant X-linked trait. As seen in this image below, you can see how it can be transmitted.


Hypertrichosis is basically only in Mexico. I hope it doesn't spread, because it looks horrible. It a dominant gene, but no one is gonna pass that on.
