Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal disorder characterized by incomplete development of Graafian follicles in the ovary due to inadequate secretion of luteinizing hormone, hence the follicles fail to ovulate and remain as multiple cysts distending the ovary.
The treatment is administration of the appropriate hormones.
