Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Clinical and Biochemical Features

    Stephen Franks
    TLDR PCOS is a common hormonal disorder causing irregular periods and increased hair growth, linked to insulin resistance and long-term health issues.
    The document discussed Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), highlighting it as one of the most common endocrine disorders characterized by hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation. The clinical and biochemical features of PCOS were noted to be heterogeneous, leading to debates on whether it represented a single disorder or multiple. The syndrome was identified as the most frequent cause of anovulation and hirsutism and was associated with insulin resistance, which had significant implications for long-term health.
