Decoding Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

by Kanthi Bansal, Pooja Sharma Dimri, Apoorva Pallam Reddy

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a heterogeneous condition with a range of clinical, endocrine and metabolic manifestations. It is characterized by hyperandrogenism, ovulatory dysfunction, and polycystic ovaries, but there is considerable inter-individual variation in presentation. The increasing prevalence of the condition and plethora of presentation along with the consequences on fertility make it a complex disorder. It puts up a mighty challenge to gynecologists, dermatologists and endocrinologists alike. This book “Decoding Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome” is divided into 5 sections comprising 20 chapters. The sections deal with the basics, diagnosis, areas of concern, and management of the PCOS. The chapters have been written by expert gynecologists, sonologists, laparoscopic surgeons, and fertility experts, who have contributed to various aspects of the spectrum. In addition, a section is dedicated to the important issue of PCOS and fertility. The text is accompanied by tables, boxes, and key points, which make the content reader-friendly. This book combines the latest research and knowledge with the experiences of the authors.
