CASE: A 29-year-old woman with Swyer syndrome achieved a twin pregnancy by oocyte donation and IVF-ET and gave birth by cesarean section.

CONCLUSION: With adequate and appropriate hormonal therapy, the uterus of 46,XY patients can develop to the point of allowing pregnancy and delivery following embryo transfer.
