A 21-year-old female with primary amenorrhea, sexual infantilism, and phenotypic female visited our Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics. The patient showed elevated follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, decreased estradiol, normal thyroid-stimulating hormone and prolactin level that means hypergonadotropic hypogonadism with normal 46, XX karyotype. Under diagnostic laparoscopy, both ovaries were intact morphology, small but anatomically normal uterus and vagina. Ovarian biopsy was taken and reported abundant primodial follicles and sporadic preantral follicles. We concluded that final diagnosis is resistant ovarian syndrome.
