Perspectives on the International Recommendations for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Adolescence
Three international conferences 2015-2018 have provided recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in adolescence. In spite of agreement about essentials, differences among details of these recommendations have engendered confusion. This Commentary provides perspective about the agreements and disagreements among these recommendations and how these recommendations relate to other guidance.

Hot topics in social media and reproductive health
Today ’s generation of adolescents and young adults have been labeled “digital natives” given that they have had access to digital technology since birth. In this review, we address two critical areas impacting adolescents’ reproductive health and social media. First, we address the current state of the science across several ‘hot topic’ areas of social media use, including body image and privacy concerns. Second, we shift to consider social media as a potential health education tool in the area of reproductive health. (Source: Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology)

To explore how women with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) describe their experiences of gender role behavior, psychosexual development and intimate relationships. CAH results in increased androgen exposure in affected females and is the most common reason for unclear sex at birth. Women with CAH have been studied to find answers to the role of androgens in psychosexual development. Nevertheless, factors that may account for the variability of outcomes in women with CAH are unclear. (Source: Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology)

Dysgerminoma in a Prepubertal Girl with Complete 46XY Gonadal Dysgenesis: Case Report and Review of the Literature
Complete 46XY gonadal dysgenesis (Swyer syndrome) is a rare and challenging diagnosis among prepubertal girls as estrogen insufficiency only becomes evident during adolescence with non-specific symptoms, such as primary amenorrhea and/or delayed puberty. Unfortunately, girls with Swyer syndrome are at high risk of malignancies in the dysgenetic gonads, which can only be prevented by performing prophylactic bilateral gonadectomy.

Spontaneous sexual development and heavy menstrual bleeding in 45,X monosomy and 45,X/47,XXX mosaic Turner syndrome and a review of the literature
Turner syndrome (TS) is one of the most common sex chromosome disorders and is characterized by short stature and gonadal dysgenesis. A few patients with TS achieve normal sexual development, menarche, and even pregnancy. We encountered two cases of Turner syndrome with spontaneous sexual development and menstruation. The patients had different karyotypes, 45,X monosomy and 45,X/47,XXX mosaic TS, and presented with severe anemia due to excessive menstrual bleeding. Abnormal uterine bleeding patterns are expected in patients with primary ovarian insufficiency; however, the menstrual patterns of patients with TS have not bee...
