We review the diagnostic criteria of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in adolescents. It is important to recognise PCOS early for timely management. Clinicians should be aware of the difficulties in diagnosing PCOS in adolescents. A multi-disciplinary approach for diagnosis and treatment is suggested. For high-risk cases, re-evaluation may avoid under-diagnosing or over-diagnosing PCOS.
