    Como se traduce "hipotróficos"? Es de un caso clínico. Acá el contexto:

    Al examen físico, se evidencia sangrado activo proveniente del útero, dolor hipogástrico a predominio de la fosa ilíaca derecha, mastalgia e hipersensibilidad de pezones. Refiriendo además, aumento de apetito y actividad sexual en las últimas 3 semanas. La evaluación ecográfica, halló endometrio de 9.5 mm. Con signos de escaso sangrado endouterino y ovarios hipotróficos.

    Gracias.

    Hola. Yo diría "hypotrophic ovaries". Atrofia sería el máximo grado de hipotrofia.
    Saludos.

    I believe I will go with Ilialluna´s answer. Thank you both.

    I think in English "hypotrophic" is not used; but in this context "atrophic" is.

    Although Ilialluna's answer sounds appealing for its similarity to the Spanish, there are very very few references to hypotrophic human ovaries in the untranslated English medical literature, and I believe that fsabroso has the right answer: atrophic.
