Isolated FSH deficiency due to mutations in the gene for β-subunit of FSH is an extremely rare autosomal recessive disease of which only eleven cases have been reported so far. The clinical features include absent breast development and primary amenorrhea in females and azoospermia with normal testosterone levels in males. In this study we report two Kashmiri sisters born to native Kashmiri consanguineous parents with failure of onset of puberty. Hormonal evaluation revealed undetectable serum FSH and estradiol and high LH. Genetic analysis of FSH β-gene identified one nonsense mutation (c.343C > T:p. Arg115Stop) in exon 3. The two sisters were homozygous for this nonsense mutation while the parents were heterozygous. Incorporation of a stop codon at 115 codon position is predicted to result in the formation of truncated FSH β protein, lacking 14 amino acid from the carboxy-terminus (p.Arg115Stop). Very recently, this same mutation was reported for the first time in a Chinese male. Ours is the first ever report of any FSH β-subunit mutation from the Indian sub-continent and this particular mutation in any female from anywhere in the world. We conclude and emphasize that this diagnosis should be considered in girls with delayed puberty and selective deficiency of FSH. © 2019, © 2019 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
