From the Back Cover:

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the single most common endocrinologic abnormality of women, affecting approximately 1 in 10-to 15 women of reproductive age. It is also the most frequent cause of oligo-ovulatory infertility. PCOS patients demonstrate androgenic symptoms including hirsutism, alopecia, and acne. Furthermore, patients with PCOS are at significant risk for developing diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and possibly cardiovascular disease. It is estimated that the healthcare cost exceeds four billion dollars annually in the United States alone, not even accounting for the significant negative effect this disorder has on quality of life.

Patients with PCOS are seen by a variety of specialists, depending on needs, including reproductive, medical, and pediatric endocrinologists; gynecologists; general internists; and dermatologists. This text reviews the latest concepts in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of the this pervasive and significant disorder, a clear and focused manner.
