Abstract

Etiology and Pathogenesis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine
disorders occurring at a frequency of 5 to 15 percent among
reproductive aged women. Depending on the diagnostic criteria
the prevalence of PCOS may range from 6 to 20 percent. PCOS
is a complex condition that involves metabolic, endocrine and
psychiatric features. The disease is characterized by chronic
anovulation, biochemical or clinical hyper-androgens and
polycystic ovary morphology. Primarily the oxidative stress
and low-grade chronic inflammation were found to be associated
with PCOS pathogenesis.
