We report on ovarian dysfunction in a 3-year-old girl with blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES). A gonadotropin releasing hormone test showed hyperresponses of luteinizing hormone (< 0.2→7.2 mIU/ml) and follicle-stimulating hormone (7.1→44.8 mIU/ml), and a human menopause gonadotropin test yielded no estradiol response (13→11 pg/ml). The results suggest that primary ovarian failure in type I BPES can take place in early childhood.
