Abstract

Ten cases are reported of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in association with psychiatric illness presenting to a liaison psychiatry service. This association is critically reviewed paying attention to explanatory factors such as selection bias and steroid treatments. Monoamine imbalances may be involved in the etiology of both PCOS and the accompanying psychiatric illness.
