Diagnosis and Management of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a comprehensive clinical reference work for primary care physicians, internists, general endocrinologists, obstetricians, gynecologists and students. PCOS is a common but frequently misdiagnosed disease. Many symptoms can be alleviated by early intervention and effective management.

Prominent endocrinologists are gathered to detail current research and treatment in this metabolic disorder, affecting a growing population. The chapters are comprehensive, providing cutting edge knowledge on pathogenesis, manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of PCOS. Each chapter will be concise concluding with cogent practice points.

The variety of medical issues presenting in PCOS patients result in late referrals or in- appropriate advice. This title will be a tool in a further understanding of the metabolic and genetic basis of PCOS, while providing management strategies.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book summarizes the current knowledge about the diagnosis, consequences, and treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). . It is designed mostly for practicing adult and pediatric endocrinologists and gynecologists. . this book also could be of interest to bariatric medicine providers who may often encounter patients with PCOS. . Illustrations are plentiful, of good quality, and aid comprehension. . It is a worthwhile publication, since information on PCOS is fragmentary and incomplete and there are not many recent extensive reviews of the topic." (Silvana Pannain, Doody's Review Service)
