A family is described in which six females in three generations experienced premature ovarian failure (POF), in three of them a FRAXA premutation was documented and the carrier status of a fourth female could be inferred, because her son had the fragile X syndrome, These findings provide further evidence for a nonrandom association between POF and the FRAXA premutation.
