Abstract:

The polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is defined by a chronic anovulation, clinical and/or biochemical evidence of hyperandrogenism, in the presence of polycystic ovaries and the absence of the other causes. The aim of the study is to estimate the prevalence of thyroid pathology in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Methods: This study is a retrospective one and was made from January 2003 to December 2009 in the Endocrinology Clinic of “Saint Spiridon” Hospital and included a number of 483 women with polycystic ovary syndrome. The study includes: anamnesis dates, clinical exams, hormonal determinations, and echographic examinations of the thyroid and ovaries. Results From this group, were taken in evidence for thyroid malfunctions 179 women: 74 autoimune thyroiditis, 88 goiters, 8 congenital mixedems, 6 Basedow diseases, 1 thyroid neoplasm, 1 toxic adenoma and 1 struma ovarii. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome have a high prevalence of thyroid pathology (37,6%). This raises the possibility that female hormones might play a pathogenic role in such diseases. Conclusions: Evaluation of the thyroid gland with a blood test for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), antithyroglobulin and antithyroid peroxidase antibody plus an echographic examination, should be a part of the investigation of polycystic ovary syndrome. Likewise, PCOS should be evaluated in patient with under-active thyroid gland.
