Abstract

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a heterogeneous disease with well-established metabolic abnormalities in women of reproductive age. There are various diagnostic criteria to define and establish PCOS. However, data conflict regarding the optimal diagnostic criteria for PCOS and its metabolic consequences. We have evaluated the clinical, endocrine, and metabolic features between main PCOS phenotypes according to different diagnostic criteria.
