Turnerís syndrome is a chromosomal disorder with 45 X0 due to absence of a set of gene from the short arm of X chromosome. The incidence of Turnerís syndrome is 1 in 2500 live births. Primary amenorrhea is well known in Turnerís syndrome, the reason being streak ovaries; but mullerian agenesis as a cause of primary amenorrhea in Turnerís syndrome is a very rare entity. The incidence of Turnerís syndrome associated with mullerian agenesis is extremely rare as there is only a hand full of cases reported in literature. We report a rare case of adolescent female who presented with primary amenorrhea and found to have Turnerís syndrome with mullerian agenesis.
