Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is crucial for the development of normal female sexual characteristics and to prevent cardiovascular complications and osteoporosis in patients with Turner's syndrome. Fertility is extremely rare and only 2% of pregnancies are the result of spontaneous ovulation, as ovarian failure is a typical feature of the syndrome. Oocyte donation is currently seen as a treatment option for infertility in these women. The authors report the case of a 38 year-old woman with a 45, XO karyotype, submitted to ovum donation and intrauterine transfer of two embryos. A twin pregnancy was achieved with an unremarkable evolution. A cesarean section was performed near term, with the birth of two healthy boys.
