Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To compare the diagnostic accuracy of Anti-Mullerian hormone with follicle stimulating hormone for ovarian reserve assessment in infertile women by Receiver Operator Characteristic curve analysis.
STUDY DESIGN: A Cross Sectional study.
PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY: At Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Health Sciences in collaboration with nd th Gynecology and Obstetrics Unit-II, Civil Hospital, Karachi from 2 October 2011 to 15 October 2012.
METHODOLOGY: Fifty two infertile women between 20-35 years of age were selected from the out-patient. Out of 52 females, 25 women presented with primary infertility (no history of previous pregnancy) and 27 were secondary sub-fertile (history of previous pregnancy). Blood samples were obtained for follicle stimulating hormone and Anti-mullerian hormone levels.
RESULTS: Descriptive statistics for Anti-mullerian hormone and follicle stimulating hormone levels was taken as mean SD (26 4.02, 1.6 0.62 and 8.98 0.701) respectively. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of serum Anti-mullerian hormone levels and follicle stimulating hormone were evaluated by receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC curve). Area under the curve was 0.80 (AUC: 0.92) with standard error of 0.044 which was significant (P

Key words: Ovarian Reserve, Anti-Mullerian Hormone, Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Infertility.
