Gonadal dysgenesis is a congenital condition in which there is gonadal dysfunction as a result of anomalies of sex chromosomes or mutations in the genes involved in the development of the indifferent embryonic gonads. It usually remains undiagnosed until when puberty fails to occur in patients. There is absence of development of female secondary sexual characteristics and primary amenorrhea. Infertility is an important manifestation of this condition, and this has a significant impact on the quality of the reproductive and family life of the patients, especially in areas where importance is placed on childbirth in marriages. This case is that of a woman with pure 46, XX gonadal dysgenesis with primary infertility who was able to achieve conception following IVF (in-vitro fertilization) with donor oocyte at our facility. This has helped to buttress the fact that with proper evaluation and effective application of hormone replacement therapy and assisted reproductive techniques, women with such cases can be helped to achieve conception and give birth.
