Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Twenty-six hirsute women were evaluated with the use of differential suppression and stimulation of the adrenal cortex and ovary in addition to visualization of the ovaries. Three groups were identified on the basis of endocrine results alone. Physical examination and reproductive history allowed further differentiation. The protocol used for study was critically reviewed and evaluated. The simultaneous administration of human chorionic gonadotropin and dexamethasone following 4 days of dexamethazone alone was felt to be the most important differential step in classification of the patients.
