A 37-year-old woman with a history consistent with polycystic ovarian disease became pregnant and developed exceedingly high levels of serum testosterone. The female fetus showed no evidence of virilization. A clinical diagnosis of bilateral theca lutein cysts was made. Modes of fetal protection from maternal androgenemia as well as suggestions for future investigations are discussed.
