Bilateral Hydronephrosis in a Female with Advanced Pelvic Floor Prolapse and Normal Renal Function

Mukhamad Sami Valid*, Uri Goldberg and Nadezhda Zaytseva

Gynecological surgeries and endometriosis may also be associated with CFS.

Coelho JK, Aldrighi JM

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age, occurring in approximately 6–15% of this population.

The pathophysiology of menstrual irregularity is related to chronic anovulation, and the symptom has a direct impact on fertility. Another common manifestation, hyperandrogenism, is typically associated with hirsutism; acne and/or alopecia may also occur, with devastating effects on the patient’s self-esteem.
