Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reproductive health problems of women. Despite this, its effective treatment remains a significant challenge to the medical profession. This second edition (published 2007) of a highly successful and well-reviewed book is a thorough update on the syndrome, its aetiology, pathology, impact on infertility, and effective medical management. Every chapter has been extensively referenced and completely revised and updated. New chapters cover: hyperinsulinemic insulin resistance; new treatments including in-vitro maturation; paediatric origins, including the Barker Hypothesis; adrenocortal dysfunction; polycystic ovary syndrome in non-western societies; surgical treatment of obesity associated with polycystic ovaries, and treatment with vitamins and minerals. The book is a reference text for all clinicians with an interest in reproductive endocrinology, including gynaecologists, IVF specialists and obstetricians.

Review of the hardback: '... clearly written, beautifully laid out and offers concise information on the background of the disease, its diagnosis, clinical manifestations and treatments ... I would recommend the book to any practitioner who regularly encounters this condition.' Hospital Doctor
Review of the hardback: 'Each chapter is readable and authoritative. This book could be dipped into by someone wanting information about a particular aspect of PCOS, but equally could be read over the course of one or two days by anyone wanting a comprehensive overview or in-depth introduction to PCOS ... an excellent reference source for any gynaecologist with an interest in reproductive medicine ... there is certainly no better book available.' Human Fertility
Review of the hardback: 'The book covers all the major aspects of PCOS and will therefore be of interest to gynaecologists and endocrinologists. It would also make fascinating reading for cardiologists, dermatologists and public health physicians ...' Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Review of the hardback: 'The list of contributors to this book reads like a worldwide gathering of the good and the great from the far-reaching realms of reproductive endocrinology and metabolism. The editors have stated that this second edition has been comprehensively updated with a more holistic approach and, indeed, the chapters seem to cover every angle of this common and complex disorder: from genetics, fetal programming and paediatric origins to the long-term health consequences ... this high quality edition should be a standard textbook for trainees and gynaecologists everywhere.' The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist
Review of the hardback: '... this book is extremely readable, well presented, and not at all daunting for the generalist, while also providing enough detail for the specialist.' Medical Journal of Australia
Review of the hardback: '... an informative book which serves as an easy-to-read current synopsis of the different facets of polycystic ovary syndrome, recommendable to anybody with either a clinical or research interest in the subject ... It would serve as a very useful addition not only to Obstetric and Gynaecology departments, but also to departments of Endocrinology, Dermatology, Diabetes and Nutrition.' Organon's Magazine on Women and Health
Review of the hardback: ' ... trying to distill the breadth of PCOD into 200 pages is a not-inconsequential task, and I am happy to report that Dr. Kovacs has succeeded admirably. This little book will occupy a valued place on my bookshelf, and I recommend it highly to others seeking an entrance to the world of PCOD.' Fertility and Sterility
