An association between bulimia nervosa and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been suggested but also questioned. Since there is still a controversy about this issue, we investigated clinical and biochemical symptoms of PCOS according to the new diagnostic criteria in a large group of bulimic women compared with controls. Seventy-seven women with bulimia and 59 matched healthy women were investigated with respect to menstrual status, polycystic ovaries, hirsutism, acne and sex hormone levels… 
Women with polycystic ovary syndrome are often depressed or anxious—A case control study
TLDR
Clinicians treating women with PCOS should be aware that these women are a high risk group for common affective and anxiety disorders as well as suicide attempts, as verified by structured clinical assessments.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: A Mysterious Ailment
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women between menarche and menopause. Clinical expression of this syndrome alters but commonly includes menstrual
Morbidity in polycystic ovary syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent endocrine condition in premenopausal women. The syndrome is characterized by hyperandrogenism, irregular menses and polycystic ovaries when

TLDR
Women with polycystic ovary syndrome have a high risk for depression and affective disorders that impair their quality of life and a biopsychosocial model should be used for adequate treatment.
The Overlap Between Binge Eating Behaviors and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: An Etiological Integrative Model.
TLDR
It is suggested that an increased prevalence of binge eating has been reported in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome; and that women suffering from BN and BED (Binge Eating Disorder) are more likely to display polycystic ovaries.
Incidence of polycystic ovaries and androgen serum levels in women with borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The data suggest a disturbed androgen metabolism in BPD patients, and testosterone, FT, androstenedione, and 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) were significantly elevated in the BPD group independently of BMI.
MANAGEMENT OF ENDOCRINE DISEASE: Morbidity in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
Long-term morbidity could be worsened by obesity, sedentary way of life, Western-style diet and smoking, whereas lifestyle intervention including weight loss may partly or fully resolve the symptoms of PCOS and could improve the long-term prognosis.
Dermatologic Manifestations of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
TLDR
Women with PCOS may present with a range of signs and symptoms, and face increased risks of reproductive, metabolic, cardiovascular, psychologic, and neoplastic sequelae, particularly if the condition is left unrecognized or untreated.
Impaired olfactory function in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
There was a negative correlation between the total odor score and the Beck Depression Score, and patients with PCOS have impaired olfactory function might be related to depressive disorders that are also observed in those patients.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Important Underrecognised Cardiometabolic Risk Factor in Reproductive-Age Women
TLDR
The intrinsic factors that produce metabolic disturbances in PCOS patients lead to chronic low-grade inflammation and to cardiovascular impairments that heighten the risk of having cardiovascular disease.

Polycystic ovaries and eating disorders: Are they related?
TLDR
The suggestion that polycystic ovaries predispose towards the development of eating disorders is not supported by this study, as scores for dieting and overall eating disorder symptoms were not significantly higher than those for women with normal ovaries.
Prevalence of polycystic ovaries in women with anovulation and idiopathic hirsutism.
TLDR
It is shown that polycystic ovaries, as defined by pelvic ultrasound, are very common in anovulatory women and are not necessarily associated with hirsutism or a raised serum luteinising hormone concentration.
Polycystic ovarian morphology and bulimia nervosa: a 9-year follow-up study.
TLDR
This study clearly shows a strong association between resolution of bulimia and changes in ovarian morphology, suggesting that changes in the former mirror change in the latter, and demonstrates normalization of ovarian morphology in previously polycystic ovaries.
Polycystic ovary syndrome and bulimia.
TLDR
The work suggests that women with PCOS should be screened for abnormaleating behaviors and raises the possibility that treatment by psychological means should be considered when abnormal eating behaviors are present.
Ultrasound diagnosis of polycystic ovaries in women who have no symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome is not associated with subfecundity or subfertility.
TLDR
The appearance of polycystic ovaries has been shown to have no significant impact on fertility in women with no symptoms and Appearances alone do not reflect the pathological features of poly Cystic ovary syndrome, and additional diagnostic criteria should be considered.

TLDR
Model fitting analysis suggested a strong genetic effect for bulimia using the BITE scoring system, and it provided strong evidence of a significant influence of environmental factors in the severity score of Bulimia.
Impaired cholecystokinin secretion and disturbed appetite regulation in women with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
It is concluded that women with PCOS have reduced postprandial CCK secretion and deranged appetite regulation associated with increased levels of testosterone and impairedCCK secretion may play a role in the greater frequency of binge eating and overweight in women withPCOS.

TLDR
PCOS remains a syndrome of ovarian dysfunction along with the cardinal features hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovary (PCO) morphology, and no single diagnostic criterion is sufficient for clinical diagnosis.
Aging women with polycystic ovary syndrome who achieve regular menstrual cycles have a smaller follicle cohort than those who continue to have irregular cycles.
TLDR
The smaller follicle count, the older age, the higher FSH concentration, and the lower FSH-induced inhibin B increment found in women with PCOS and a regular menstrual cycle confirm that a decrease in the size of the follicle cohort due to ovarian aging is largely responsible for the regular menstrual cycles in aging PCOS women.
Long-term menstrual and reproductive function in patients with bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
It is suggested that while menstrual irregularities are common, bulimia nervosa appears to have little impact on later ability to achieve pregnancy.
