Premature ovarian failure (POF) is one of the reasons of secondary amenorrhea in women younger than 40 years. It touches approximately 1% of women <40 years. Beside hormonal deficiencies, infertility is a main problem in patients diagnosed with POF and the probability of pregnancy is little even with therapeutic interventions. In this case report, we define a young woman with POF, accessible to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain and made a management task in emergency room.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
