Materials and Methods:  A sample of 100 diagnosed PCOS patients, age range 16-25 years with clinical features of hyperandrogenism were included in this study with their written consent. 25OH Vitamin D Total Elisa Kit was used to assess the levels of Vitamin D. The Data was analyzed by using SPSS version 21 and ANOVA test was used to assess the relationship. P value < 0.05 was considered significant.  Results: Vitamin D levels were tested in PCOS patients presenting clinical features of hyperandrogenism and it is found that there is insignificant relationship present between  severity of hypovitaminosis D and  hirsutism (P=0.669), acne (P=0.480) and alopecia (P=0.317) among PCOS patients.  Conclusion: Although hirsutisim presents itself as the most common feature in PCOS patients (51%), but no significant relationship is found between Hypovitaminosis D and clinical features of hyperandrogenism suggesting insignificant role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of hyperandrogenism in PCOS patients.Keywords: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome; Hyperandrogenism; Vitamin D.
