This article describes a case of 18year-old-female who presented with primary amenorrhea, phenotypic features of Turners syndrome, which was confirmed later by Karyotype to have mosaic 45XO(8)/46XY(22). She had delayed puberty and proved (hormonally) to have ovarian failure, with absent Mullerian structures (radiologically and laparoscopy).
