Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A successful triplet gestation in a 45,X/46,XY woman is presented. A previously hypoplastic uterus was prepared for implantation by exogenous hormone replacement. Conception was achieved through in vitro fertilization of donor oocytes and transfer of four embryos into a hormonally primed endometrium. This case illustrates that some women with 45,X/46,XY karyotype can have a successful triplet pregnancy. Therefore, a conservative approach during gonadectomy in patients with a Y chromosome may be warranted.
