Abstract: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of complex familial disorders and mostly found endocrine disorder in women. The prevalence of PCOS ranges between 6-10% depending on the criteria used. Some attributes related to PCOS consist of ovulatory dysfunction, hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovarian morphology based on ultrasound finding. PCOS has been difficult to diagnose in adolescents since some changes in normal puberty with a phenotype similar to PCOS might appear. Early identification of PCOS may result in optimization of treatment regarding to metabolic problem and long-term reproduction. Individualized management is preferred and should be adjusted to the circumstances at which it is diagnosed in adolescents. The focus of the therapy should be based on multimodal approach with life style modification as the first line and pharmacological therapy as symptom relief.
