Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Monica Mortensen, DO (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is an overview of the association between insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with a special focus on pathogenesis, evaluation, and treatment. The book also focuses on the other metabolic and fertility issues occurring in PCOS.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an up-to-date overview of PCOS and its metabolic consequences, specifically insulin resistance.
Audience: Although it can be used by students and residents, it is written primarily for practitioners whose focus is either in endocrinology or obstetrics/gynecology.
Features: The book discusses the pathogenesis of PCOS including both genetic and environmental factors that influence insulin resistance and PCOS. It reviews the complications and available therapeutic options. The chapters pertaining to adrenarche and the related genes are helpful. The only shortcoming is the organization of the chapters, which could have been better arranged for better flow of information.
Assessment: The book is useful and the information is current and relevant. As a pediatric endocrinologist, I found the obstetrics/gynecology chapters helpful, since I don't frequently manage the fertility issues of PCOS.
