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.

Recensioner i media

'The style is readable and informed and for the most part is complemented by graphics and illustrations which are helpful and clear.' - Mark Hamilton, Human Fertility, March 2007 'An excellent contemporary and detailed overview of PCOS: clearly written and well illustrated. This is essential reading for both the general gynaecologist and specialist in reproductive medicine produced by recognised leaders in the field.' - Highly Commended, Obstetrics & Gynaecology Category, 2006 BMA Medical Book Competition 'Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is the best attempt so far to integrate conflicting views of this syndrome into an understanding that will help the general physician, endocrinologist, dermatologist, gynecologist, and radiologist in treating patients.' - The New England Journal of Medicine, December, 2005 'This book is a wonderful overall management guide for physicians who see patients with PCOS. The book is an easy-to-read guide that covers the entire range of topics pertinent to PCOS. Because chapters are divided according to a symptom-orientated approach, the book is easy to use as a quick reference.' - Fertility and Sterility
