Abstract: 

Background: According to high incidence of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in our population, the question is if transvginal can help the diagnosis of this disease. To answer this question, this study was performed on patients referred to Mahdieh hospital between 1999.2001.
Materials and methods: It was a descriptive study. 60 PCOS patients were included and their ovarian volume, number and size of small follicles in each ovary, ovarian asymmetry and stromal hyperechogenicity were determined by transvaginal ultrasound, and then compared to Takahachi and Vander's criteria.
Results: Of 60 patients, 93.3% had infertility, 53.3% oligomenorrhea, 67% amenorrhea, and 36.7% regular cycles. Hyrsutism and acne were revealed in 43.3% and 10% respectively. Mean (±SD) ovarian volume was 11.1±6.7 cc. Mean follicular number was 13±4.4 and follicular size was 6.7±1.5 mm. Increased ovarian hyperechogenicity was seen in 83.3% and ovarian asymmetry was seen in 50% of patients.
Conclusion: Ultrasound indices were reliable for our population, but with respect to the lack of gold standard, it is better to study the role of transvaginal ultrasound, clinical and hormonal evaluations.
