To report a successful pregnancy in a patient with pure 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis.
Case report.
Academic reproductive endocrinology and infertility unit.
A patient with pure 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis and a desire to become pregnant.
Laparoscopic gonadectomy, in vitro fertilization using donor oocytes, transfer of cryopreserved blastocysts, and cesarean delivery.
Successful pregnancy and live birth.
Successful pregnancy and delivery of a healthy infant following in vitro fertilization using donor oocytes and embryo transfer.
With the use of donor oocytes, patients with pure 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis can anticipate successful pregnancy.

    ABSTRACT: The electrorheology (ER) effect in liquids and liquid crystals are investigated by ultrasonic wave propagation. The acoustic phase-delay change, which is related to the ultrasonic wave velocity, is related to the viscosity of liquids and liquid crystals. The applied voltage dependence of acoustic phase-delay change in nematic liquid crystal, the ferroelectric liquid crystal and silicone oil are measured. The ER effect in liquid and liquid crystals are discussed in the viewpoint of liquid-crystal director orientation.

    ABSTRACT: Nitrogen incorporation dramatically reduces the Ga<sub>1-x</sub>In<sub>x</sub>P band gap. Using the red shift of the photoluminescence spectrum of Ga<sub>0.46</sub>In<sub>0.54</sub>N<sub>0.005</sub>P<sub>0.995</sub>/GaAs quantum wells, which indicates less quantum confinement, we estimate the valence band offset to be about 97% of the total band gap difference. N incorporation significantly reduces the free-electron concentration and mobility, and the free-electron concentration of Ga<sub>0.48</sub>In<sub>0.52</sub>N<sub>0.005</sub>P<sub>0.995</sub> decreases dramatically with high-temperature annealing (800 °C), from 4.4×10<sup>18</sup> to 8.0×10<sup>16</sup> cm<sup>-3</sup>. This is believed to be due to passivation of Si by N through the formation of Si-N pairs. Therefore, GaInNP is more suitable to be a thin layer as the hole-blocking layer for tunnel-collector HBTs. The large valence-band discontinuity and large hole effective mass would block holes, while there would be no electron barrier at the base-collector junction.

    ABSTRACT: To report a rare presentation of Swyer syndrome in a woman with pure 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis. Case report. Academic gynecology and obstetrics department. A 28-year-old woman with primary amenorrhea. Laparoscopic gonadectomy. Age at diagnosis, risk of gonadal malignancy, bone mineral density, uterus size, height. The patient had pure 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis with hypoplastic uterus, which is a rare finding in Swyer syndrome. She had developed no gonadal malignancies and, despite receiving estrogen, had remained amenorrheic. Further studies should be done on this rare chromosomal condition to find the exact factors affecting the uterus size and to improve the ways of inducing puberty in such patients by considering the age of diagnosis in order to help them have a normal sex life and also the ability to carry a fetus in their immature uteruses.
