Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) presents a multifaceted clinical picture, characterized by hyperandrogenism, ovarian dysfunction, and metabolic disturbances, including insulin resistance and dyslipidemia. Within this complex landscape, anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) emerges as a key player, reflecting ovarian reserve and serving as a prognostic marker for fertility. This study aimed to elucidate the phenotypic and genotypic spectrum of AMH (rs10407022) and LHCGR (rs13405728) in PCOS among South Indian women, leveraging a cohort of 600 subjects diagnosed according to Rotterdam criteria. Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium analysis facilitated gene-gene interaction exploration. Our investigation revealed a noteworthy presence of the TT allele variant of AMH rs10407022 in 18 individuals within the PCOS cohort. Furthermore, LHCGR rs13405728 exhibited four instances of the CC allele variant. These findings underscore the significance of AMH and LHCGR gene polymorphisms in PCOS pathogenesis and folliculogenesis among South Indian women, offering insights into the genetic underpinnings of this complex endocrine disorder.
