(deutsch) LUF-Syndrom
(englisch) luteinized unruptered follicle syndrome, LUF syndrome.

I couldn't find anything to support PSK = Pelviskopie, however, it would make sense within the context you give, and the previous answerer seems to be quite positive on that account.
HTH!

PSK Pelviskopie, LUF ? luteinizing hormone factor


Explanation:
PSK seems to be "pelvioscopy" in English, or pelvoscopy (both from Dorland). As for LUF, "luteinizing hormone factor" is a guess, but feasible given your context. "LH" is the normal English shorthand for luteinizing hormone - maybe German uses LU... Hope this helps a little, anyway.
