Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the women complaining from polycystic ovary syndrome
and the relation of serum vitamin D levels according to the different phenotypes of the disease by a
retrospective study.
Methods: Records for 242 infertile women diagnosed with PCOS have been examined. In this
retrospective study, 100 of them have been randomly recorded for 4 PCOS phenotypes. 40 normal
ovulation women with a male factor history were selected as the control group.
In four phenotype types including: age, BMIs, the infertility duration, the hormonal profile and the
serum vitamin D, the P value of 0.05 was found to be statistically significant.
Results: In comparison with PCOS patients (P<0.001), the data showed a serum vitamin D level of
statistically importance in the control group. Also, four PCOS phenotypes had no significant variation in
the serum vitamin D levels.
Conclusions: There were no significant differences between the serum vitamin D levels of the different
PCOS phenotypes. The additional studies of large samples are recommended for determining the role
of the serum vitamin D level in PCOS patients.
