Stein-Leventhal syndrome regarded as the most widespread endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, yet debate over suitable diagnostic criterion and frame limitations with sampling method.

The aim of this study was to check prevalence of this gynecologic disorder between women in different parts of the globe.

There was variation in the prevalence of this dangerous disorder among the participants, attributed to genetic diversity and their exposure to biochemical risk factors.

Extensive studies must be conducted about this real health problem to keep human resources and to meet young and strong community.
