Polycystic Ovaries (detailed)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrinologic disorder resulting in chronic anovulation. The clinical appearance of PCOS was originally described by Stein and Leventhal in 1905 (often called the Stein Leventhal syndrome) and classically has involved obesity (overweight), amenorrhea (absence of menstrual flow) and hirsutism (excess hair growth with a male pattern) associated with the finding of enlarged ovaries that have many follicular cysts seemingly arrested in development.

There are "atypical" presentations for PCOS. About 30% of PCOS patients are not hirsute, probably as a result of decreased peripheral metabolism of the androgens to the more active form (dihydrotestosterone) that is associated with hirsutism. Also, about 50% of PCOS patients are not obese and some are quite slender.

Many women with PCOS have a mild elevation of insulin and associated insulin resistance. Obese women have a greater disorder of insulin than thin women. There is a syndrome called HAIR-AN syndrome which involves hyperandrogenic insulin resistance and acanthosis nigricans. Acanthosis nigricans is a an irregular velvety dark discoloration of the skin especially in regions of skin folds or creases. It seems to be especially difficult to stimulate ovulation in women with HAIR-AN syndrome.
