The ­present ­review con­firms the exis­tence of the so-­called “ovar­ian-­derived pro­re­nin-angio­ten­sin cas­cade”. It also ­describes the phys­io­pa­thol­o­gy of the ­system and, con­se­quent­ly, its role in the gen­e­sis of phe­nom­e­na con­cern­ing repro­duc­tive func­tion such as ovu­la­tion, ster­oid syn­the­sis and fol­li­cu­lo­gen­e­sis. Moreover, the “ovar­ian-­derived pro­re­nin-angio­ten­sin cas­cade” ­appears to play an impor­tant role in the aetio­path­o­gen­e­sis of dis­eas­es such as ovar­ian ­tumours, ovar­ian hyper­stim­u­la­tion syn­drome and ectop­ic preg­nan­cy.
