Hypertrichosis is a well-recognized adverse effect of therapy with either cyclosporine or minoxidil. We present a case of extreme hypertrichosis in an eight-year-old male liver transplant recipient who received concurrent cyclosporine and minoxidil therapy. A review of drug-induced hypertrichosis is presented.
