Polyzystisches Ovarialsyndrom

Das Polyzystische Ovarialsyndrom (engl.: Polycystic ovary syndrome; kurz: PCO-Syndrom, PCOS) ist eine der häufigsten Stoffwechselstörungen geschlechtsreifer Frauen, ausgelöst durch unterschiedliche pathogenetische Mechanismen. Das PCOS ist die häufigste Ursache für erhöhte Androgenspiegel (Hyperandrogenismus), Zyklusstörungen und Unfruchtbarkeit bei der Frau. Die ältere Bezeichnung Stein-Leventhal-Syndrom ist auch heute noch in Gebrauch. Andere mögliche Bezeichnungen sind chronische hyperandrogenämische Anovulation (CHA) oder Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD).
