Objective of the Review: A systematic analysis of recently published data on the role of vitamin D in the regulation of steroidogenesis and folliculogenesis and in the development of hormonal disorders accompanying various gynecological diseases.

Key Points: This review includes data from relevant Russian and foreign papers found in bibliographical electronic databases. It describes specific aspects of vitamin D metabolism and its relationship with steroidogenesis in the ovaries. The authors highlight a variety of vitamin D functions performed through genomic and non-genomic mechanisms and the possible involvement of this vitamin in the epigenetic and allosteric regulation of steroidogenesis and folliculogenesis. They also explore the possible role of vitamin D deficiency in the development of hormonal disorders in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome or endometriosis. The review cites evidence-based approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency.

Conclusion: Elimination of vitamin D deficiency may be an important step in a comprehensive treatment program for women of reproductive age with diseases causing normogonadotropic anovulation.
