Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is characterised by menstrual irregularities/abnormalities, hirsutism (male-like hairiness in women), obesity and metabolic syndrome, resulting from abnormalities in the metabolism of androgens and estrogen and in the control of androgen production. It was once thought to be mainly due to an ovarian defect as it was often associated with enlarged polycystic ovaries, hence its name polycystic ovary syndrome. However, it is now known that PCOS may occur in women with normal sized ovaries and polycystic ovarian changes can be found in women with normal menstrual cycles. (Derm Net )
