Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To discuss, on the basis of the experience of two clinical cases and extensive literature review, the significance of extremely low levels of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also known as Müllerian-inhibiting substance, in infertile women. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: University-based infertility clinic at a medical center in Switzerland. PATIENT(S): Two women, 29 and 41 years of age and with a 2- and 4-year history of secondary infertility, respectively. INTERVENTION(S): Clinical, radiological, and biological investigation of infertility, including repeated measurements of the serum AMH with serial ELISA assays. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Levels of AMH and development of ongoing pregnancy. RESULT(S): Both women had a spontaneous ongoing pregnancy despite undetectable AMH levels. CONCLUSION(S): Although it is helpful for day-to-day management of infertile patients, the predictive value of AMH for the occurrence of a spontaneous ongoing pregnancy has limits.
