Toward a standard definition of polycystic ovarian morphology

Toward a standard definition of polycystic ovarian morphology
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common cause of infertility due to anovulation. In general, women with PCOS exhibit features of menstrual irregularity, hyperandrogenism, and insulin resistance; however, the phenotypic spectrum is broad. Diagnostic inconsistencies and heterogeneous inclusion criteria have limited the strength of available research studies and subsequent development of evidence-based guidelines. Although not required for the diagnosis of PCOS, ultrasound imaging is included within the most commonly used classification systems (1, 2).
