Özet

We report a case of pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POPQ) stage III uterine prolapse in a 25-year-old nulligravida. Premature ovarian failure was diagnosed after 1 year of amenorrhea. Localized scleroderma was noticed on her thigh and lower back. We discuss the possible role of scleroderma and ovarian failure on the occurrence of uterine prolapse in light of the literature.
