Diagnostic criteria and PCOS definitions used by clinicians and researchers are almost as heterogeneous as the syndrome. This first part of study is determine whether genetic polymorphisms influence hormonal and metabolic characteristics in Taiwanese patients with PCOS and controls. Furthermore, women with PCOS were reported with high risk of cardiovascular disease, the investigators planned to calculate the difference of carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) between women with PCOS and normal control to determine the premature atherosclerosis of women with PCOS.
