Summary

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO) is one of the most common reproductive health problems of women. Despite this, its effective treatment remains a significant challenge to the medical profession. This new publication provides an essential guide to the diagnosis of the syndrome, its aetiology, pathology and effective medical management. An important theme running through the book is the role of PCO as a major cause of infertility, and the use of new assisted reproductive technologies to overcome this problem. In addition, this comprehensive account summarises the most recent advances in the molecular basis of the syndrome, its genetic basis and long-term health effects. Given the significant new developments in all these areas, this up-to-date account is the definitive guide to effective clinical practice in an area where consensus has previously been lacking. It will appeal to all doctors with an interest in reproductive endocrinology, including gynaecologists, IVF specialists and obstetricians.
