  • A.k.a. PCOS. "These 'cysts' are actually immature follicles, not cysts ("polyfollicular ovary syndrome" would have been a better name). The follicles have developed from primordial follicles, but the development has stopped ('arrested') at an early antral stage due to the disturbed ovarian function." (Wikipedia)
