    full hirsutism?

    "The picture shows normal hair growth on the right, and full hirsutism on the left."

    What does it mean by "full" hirsutism?

    for sooth, hirsute
    a mohair suit...

    I love that word. You probably won't come across it outside of medical texts and nasty jokes about another man's back-hair.

    It just means "hairy", especially excessively hairy.
    "Full hirsutism" is probably just overly erudite medical terminology. (but you have to memorize it for the exams anyway!)
