Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To report a pregnancy in a patient with classic galactosemia despite signs of no ovarian reserve to draw attention to the limited predictive value of ovarian reserve tests in these patients.

DESIGN:

Case report.

SETTING:

Secondary and tertiary care center.

PATIENT(S):

A patient with classic galactosemia with premature ovarian failure and two previous pregnancies.

INTERVENTION(S):

Exogenous FSH ovarian reserve test and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) measurement.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):

17beta-Estradiol response, AMH level.

RESULT(S):

Pregnancy despite undetectable AMH (<0.1 microg/L) and no E(2) response (exogenous FSH ovarian reserve test).

CONCLUSION(S):

Fluctuating premature ovarian failure makes fertility counseling of patients with classic galactosemia difficult. Commonly used ovarian function and reserve tests seem to have no significance.
