A Case of Premature Ovarian Failure Associated with Myasthenia Gravis

Abstract

Premature ovarian failure is a condition causing amenorrhea, hypoestrogenism, and elevated gonadotropins in women younger than 40 years. Although chromosomal and genetic abnormalities, enzymatic defects and iatrogenic agents, including cytotoxic drugs, pelvic irradiation and ovariectomy, have been cited as causes of premature ovarian failure, the most common cause is autoimmuity. We have experienced a case of premature ovarian failure associated with myasthenia gravis. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
