Clearly presented and thoroughly up to date, this important text provides an overview of current knowledge of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - its etiology, pathology, and the implications for effective medical management. In contrast with existing titles, this book focuses on the difficulty in making an accurate diagnosis and the consequential problem of identifying the most effective program of management.

Key features:

* coherent approach, integrating international contributions
* first book on PCOS since the Rotterdam Consensus meeting
* focuses on clinical manifestations of disease, diagnostic criteria and options for management
* illustrated with tables, graphs and charts to explain physiologic principles.

Among the most important consequences of PCOS is infertility, and the authors provide clear guidance on the role of new assisted reproductive technologies to overcome this problem.
