Considering the clinically evident association of hyperandrogenism with metabolic abnormalities, these two definitions fit better the metabolic phenotype of PCOS. Conversely, the Rotterdam criteria are less selective in metabolic terms, since they embrace a wider spectrum of women with less-pronounced endocrine and metabolic abnormalities . On these grounds, the lack of significant difference in insulin sensitivity between PCOS women and controls, reported by some investigators, may be attributable to the inclusion of patients with milder phenotypes and particularly, those without [21, 28] hyperandrogenemia.
The joint meeting of the ASRM and ESHRE in Rotterdam in 2003  was key to the agreement of a refined definition of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and for the first time included a specific description of the ultrasound morphology. The definition required two out of three of the following criteria: 1. Oligo- and/or anovulation 2. Hyperandrogenism (clinical and/or biochemical) 3. Polycystic ovaries and the exclusion of other aetiologies (congenital adrenal hyperplasias, androgen-secreting tumours, Cushing s syndrome).
Studies in hyperandrogenic adolescents  and in adult women with PCOS  have shown positive associations of insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia with biochemical hyperandrogenemia and anovulation . The finding that inhibition of insulin secretion by diazoxide treatment caused a decline in androgen levels in PCOS women without detectable IR supports the notion that insulin action on theca cells contributes to increased androgen levels in PCOS . In support of a detrimental role of hyperinsulinemia in reproductive function is also the fact that women with type 1 diabetes have a two-fold higher prevalence of PCOS than the one established in the general female population .
