Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) was first described in 1935 by Stein and Leventhal [1]. They described several women with amenorrhea, hirsutism, obesity, and polycystic ovaries. Today, PCOS is one of the most common endocrine diseases in women. It is also one of the most common causes of infertility and menstrual irregularity. Acne is common in women with PCOS and may be the initial reason women with occult PCOS seek medical attention. Inquiring about menstrual irregularity and/or hirsutism in women with acne may facilitate referral to a gynecologist or endocrinologist for early intervention on fertility issues and medical comorbidities.
