Background: The PCOS is the commonest endocrinal disturbance leading to infertility and oligomenorrhea characterized by the presence of enlarged ovaries with multiple small cysts and a hypervascularized androgen secreting stroma.

Materials and methods: Total 105 cases between the age 18 to 40 years were studied, out of which 25 were normal to serve as control and 80 PCOS patients were selected. Size and Volume of both ovaries was measured by USG. Hormonal levels for serum LH, FSH, and LH : FSH ratio were determined by chemiluminescence method {CLIA}.

Results: So most of the patient were in age group 21 to 30 yrs i.e. 15 patients (60%). So mean ovarian volume was within normal range (less than 10cc) in all the age groups.

Conclusion: In our study LH:FSH ratio was found more than 2 in 51.25% of PCOS patients and USG positive morphological findings of ovaries were found in all the 80 patients of PCOS (100%). There is a significant co-relation between ovarian morphology and LH: FSH Ratio.
