Prevalence of polycystic ovaries in women with acne.

PMID: 2532876  

The prevalence of polycystic ovaries was determined by pelvic ultrasound imaging in 119 women (mean age, 23.6 +/- 6.06 years; range, 14-45 years) with acne but with no menstrual disorders, obesity, or hirsutism, and in 35 healthy controls (mean age, 25 +/- 5.8 years; range, 21-40 years). Polycystic ovaries were found in 54 out of 119 patients with acne (45.37%) and in 6 out of 35 controls (17.14%). The results of this study indicate that polycystic ovaries are common in women with acne and not necessarily associated with menstrual disorders, obesity, or hirsutism.
