The present study aimed to assess the fibrinolytic and metabolic system parameters in obese patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and to compare them in obese PCOS patients and women with simple obesity. We studied 19 obese women with PCOS (age: 25.1 +/- 4.6 years, body mass index (BMI): 34.7 +/- 3.9 kg/m2; mean +/- standard deviation) and 20 age-(More)
OBJECTIVE Disturbances in the folate-dependent one-carbon metabolism have been reported in depression. Polymorphic variants of genes encoding key enzymes of folate and methionine metabolism may have an impact on catecholamine catabolism conducted by catechol-O-methyltransferase. METHODS The distribution of polymorphisms of genes encoding(More)
Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory condition in which foci of endometrial tissue grow outside of the uterine cavity. Endometriosis was estimated to affect 176 million women of childbearing potential all over the world in 2010. The presence of extrauterine endometrial tissue is associated with pain and infertility. Typical symptoms of endometriosis(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was assessment of a possible relationship between the polymorphisms of the candidate genes participating in the etiology of some neurological and psychiatric disorders and the risk of depression in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. METHODS A total of 167 (54 perimenopausal and 113 postmenopausal) Caucasian women from(More)
Among the causes of premature ovarian failure (POF) two groups of factors are reported: factors which lead to decrease of follicular number and factors which stimulate follicular atresia. In the first group genetic factors are the most important whereas in the second: enzymatic autoimmunological, iatrogenic, toxins and infections are reported. In 1986(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of exogenous hormones (estradiol and progestogen) used in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the serum galanin level in postmenopausal women with normal body weight. METHODS We studied 20 postmenopausal patients (mean age 52.3 +/- 5.2 years) before and after 1 year of HRT. The mean duration(More)
We report a case of 24 year old patient with secondary amenorrhea, virilization and elevated serum testosterone concentration, in which cystic-solid tumor in right ovary was found. Surgical treatment was applied--adnexectomy. Histopathologic examination supported suspicion of androblastoma. After treatment regulation of menses and serum testosterone level(More)
We report 3 cases of primary amenorrhea accompanied by cyclic abdominal pain. In presented cases primary amenorrhea was caused by the absence of normally developed cervix. We applied surgical treatment--hysterectomy. In 1 case before hysterectomy we tried to reconstruct cervical canal. This effort was unsuccessfull.
11 patients with ovarian gonadal tumors were treated at Clinic of Endocrinological-Gynecology of Academy of Medicine in Poznań. All presented symptoms of hormonal ovetproduction. In 9 cases we performed adnexectomy, only in 1 case (patient after menopause) hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy.
