    ABSTRACT: Objective: To find out the correlation between various biochemical and clinical features of polycystic ovarian syndrome and to determine the best hormonal marker for the same. Material and Methods: The study included 100 patients of polycystic ovary syndrome (50 married & 50 unmarried) and a control group comprising of 50 women (25 married & 25 unmarried) in the age group of 18 - 30 years. The pregnant females and those having hyperandrogenism due to any other endocrine disorders were excluded. Results: Mean age was 27.66 years in the married study group and 25.46 years in the unmarried study group. About 71% of patients had oligomenorrhea. It significantly correlated with raised LH:FSH ratio and raised total testosterone levels. Body mass index was raised (>25 kg/m2) in 66.7% married and 72.66% unmarried patients in study group and in 22% in control group. 95% of the patients in the study group and 4% in the control group were detected to have polycystic ovaries on ultrasonography. 62% of the patients had raised LH levels; total testosterone was elevated in 57.7%. The LH:FSH ratio was raised in 41% in study group patients more in the unmarried group 56% than in married group 26%. 20% of patients in the control group had an elevated LH:FSH ratio. Total testosterone level was elevated in 60% of our patients. None of the patient in the control group had elevated testosterone levels. About 31% of the patients in study group were hirsute. Conclusion: Hormonal values correlate well with polycystic ovarian syndrome and serum total testosterone served as the best hormonal marker for such patients.
