Abstract

To test the hypothesis that there is an association between polycystic ovary disease and Briquet's syndrome, the authors administered a health questionnaire to infertile women with polycystic ovary disease, infertile women with tubal disease, and normal women. The patients with polycystic ovary disease endorsed significantly more physical and psychological complaints than either control group. Structured interviews revealed that five of the 39 (13%) met diagnostic criteria for definite or probable Briquet's syndrome. This study gives support to an association between polysymptomatic complaints, Briquet's syndrome, and polycystic ovary disease.
