Polycystic ovary syndrome in men

Posted by Chantel Martiromo, research contributed by PubMed  
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also referred to as Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is one of the most common endocrinopathies. According to the study by the University of Texas, posted in PubMed, indeed, male relatives may suffer from insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, recognition of this syndrome in men is important, since pharmacologic treatments identified for women with PCOS may alleviate metabolic problems related to insulin resistance and its sequelae in men with a similar underlying defect. We suggest that first-degree relatives of patients with PCOS should be examined not only for phenotypic features characteristic of PCOS but also for biochemical evidence of hyperinsulinemia and hyperandrogenism. In addition to examining these individuals for obesity, the women should be evaluated for hirsutism and the men should be screened for early-onset male-pattern alopecia and excess hairiness. Serologic evaluation should included the ratio of fasting levels of glucose to insulin, a glucose tolerance test, the free testosterone level and the sex hormone-binding globulin level. Finally, both male and female first-degree relatives of patients with PCOS should be tested for the underlying molecular defect(s) of this condition, once it is identified. As new treatments for PCOS emerge, e.g. insulin-sensitizing drugs, it will be important to determine if these treatments have beneficial effects on the metabolic symptoms and complications in all afflicted patients, regardless of gender.
