In brief: See answer

Hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the normal for the age, sex and race of an individual, in contrast to hirsutism, which is excess hair growth in women.
The cause of hypertrichosis is unknown. In a few select cases, it has been related to medication or systemic disease (see link) http://www.Merckmanuals.Com/professional/dermatologic_disorders/hair_disorders/hirsutism.Html.
