Study finds, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Patients with McCu
A Study was conducted to identify PCOS in a population of female patients with MAS by retrospective chart review.

All females with a prior diagnosis of MAS who were older than 12 years of age at the time of chart review were included.

--17 females with MAS were included in the analysis. PCOS appeared to be more prevalent in MAS patients than expected based on population estimates (exact binomial test 0.353).

--The average BMI was not significantly different between MAS patients with or without PCOS (23.38 kg/m2 vs. 23.44 kg/m2, two-sample Wilcoxon rank-sum test with continuity correction, W=29).

--Most patients (71%) were treated with an aromatase inhibitor and/or a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist.

The results of this study suggests that females with MAS have a statistically higher prevalence of PCOS.
