Abstract

Here we present a case of young female who presented to us with secondary amenorrhea causing regression of puberty which is quite uncommon as a presentation of FCPD which is occasionally encountered in our day to day clinical practice. The aim of this communication is to keep a high index of suspicion and to keep FCPD as a possible aetiology which can lead to regression of puberty.
