The purpose of this paper is to review the endocrinologic evaluation of 58 patients who presented to our institution this past year with a chief complaint of absent or irregular menses. The primary goal for presenting these patients is to review the results of several newer studies as well as older and more classical studies which are useful in the differential diagnosis of amenorrhea. Such newer studies not only take advantage of the more current knowledge of the ovulatory process but also utilize recently developed and highly sensitive techniques of hormonal assay. It is hoped that this will provide the reader with some suggestions for a current and efficient method to evaluate the several causes of amenorrhea.
