The study of various mechanisms of the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) shows the multifactorial nature of its development with the involvement of many organs and systems, as well as growth factors that are actively involved in the growth and proliferation processes of both normal and pathologically altered biological tissues, including the ovaries, not only with PCOS, but also with endometriosis and tumor formations. The article discusses new data on the involvement of insulin-like and vascular endothelial growth factors in the pathogenesis of PCOS. The study of their role is relevant and promising task.
