BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovarian disease is one of the most common causes of infertility in women of reproductive age. Anti- mullerian hormone (AMH), a member of transforming growth factor (TGF) family which is secreted by granulosa cells of growing follicle, is found to be increased to three to four fold in Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) patients as evidenced by previous studies. But the level of AMH in relation to the infertile status of PCOS was not studied yet. The present study was focused to determine the discriminative power of AMH in infertility subjects with regular cycles and infertility subjects associated with PCOS...

The diagnostic accuracy of hysterosalpingography and laparoscopy was compared. One hundred fourty three infertile women were prospectively investigated in two years duration. Laparoscopic chromopertubation using methylen blue dye performed on days 8-16. Hysterosalpingography performed on days 7-10 with water soluble contrast medium. There was agreement between the results of both methods in 66.4 per cent /95/ of the patients. In 15 of the 63 patients with a normal hysterosalpingography, however, peritubal or tubal disease was observed at the time of laparoscopy/false-negative results, 10...
