This volume addresses the latest research findings on the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, genetics, and consequences of androgen excess disorders in women, including PCOS, nonclassic adrenal hyperplasia, androgen-secreting tumors, severe insulin-resistant hyperandrogenic syndromes, and rarer causes of androgen excess and hirsutism. Full consideration is given to the long-term consequences of androgen excess and PCOS, including endometrial hyperplasia and carcinoma, infertility, cardiovascular and lipoprotein abnormalities, osteoporosis, obesity and glucose intolerance, and psychosocial problems. In addition, detailed information on the methods now available for diagnosis and treatment of these disorders are extensively reviewed. Cutting-edge and timely, the second edition of Androgen Excess Disorders in Women: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Other Disorders serves as an indispensable guide and resource for clinicians and researchers alike in the care and study of women with androgen excess disorders."@en ;
