Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume provides an up to date comprehensive review on various aspects of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a more and more diagnosed disorder also in adolescent girls. It is divided into 6 parts . . A well written and informative text." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 5 (3), 2008)"This is an overview of the association between insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with a special focus on pathogenesis, evaluation, and treatment. The book also focuses on the other metabolic and fertility issues occurring in PCOS. . Although it can be used by students and residents, it is written primarily for practitioners whose focus is either in endocrinology or obstetrics/gynecology. . The book is useful and the information is current and relevant." (Monica Mortensen, Doody's Review Service, August, 2007)
