Authors: Arslan E, Gorkem U, Togrul C Abstract Introduction It is still unclear in the literature whether low vitamin D levels play a role in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), especially with respect to the regulation of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH). Therefore, we aimed to investigate whether there could be a relationship between vitamin D deficiency status and PCOS. Materials and Methods A total of 146 infertile women were divided into two groups according to their ovarian reserve patterns: (i) normal (NOR), and (ii) high (PCOS). The participants were also categorized into two groups accor...

AbstractEpidemiological studies showing the higher frequency of obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome in men, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and in post-menopausal women suggest the beneficial role of estrogen. These findings are well supported by the pre-clinical studies (ten research studies described in this review) showing that estrogen and phytoestrogens attenuate the deleterious effects of chronic intermittent hypoxia (obstructive apnea in animals) on the genioglossal muscles and on other organs (co-morbidities) in ovariectomized rodents. Moreover, clinical studies (four research studies described in this revi...

Purpose of review Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is often difficult to diagnose in adolescents. Recent recommendations and concepts regarding the diagnosis and treatment of PCOS in the adolescent girl are considered. Recent findings The diagnosis of PCOS in adolescents should be primarily based on clinical and biochemical signs of hyperandrogenism and presentation with irregular menses. Because of the similarity of normal pubertal development and features of PCOS, the diagnosis should be deferred until at least 2 years following menarche. For girls who do not fulfill the diagnostic criteria, the focus should be on t...
