Abstract: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder in adolescents, with potentially significant lifelong consequences. This prospective study set out to determine if the investigators could derive a threshold value of antimullerian hormone (AMH) that would predict its presence according to two internationally recognized definitions using a simple measurement, avoiding more extensive and potentially more invasive investigations. The study failed to demonstrate, in a general adolescent population, that serum AMH is a reliable predictor of PCO morphology or for the presence of PCOS.
