The data about premature ovarian failure and autoimmune oophoritis are collected and analysed in the review. The data about experimental models of ovarian autoimmunity: autoim­mune ovarian dysgenenesis, murine experimental autoimmune oophoritis, experimental immune ovarian failure are collected and analysed in the review of the literature.

Keywords: premature ovarian failure, experimental autoim-mune ovarian dysgenenesis, experimental autoimmune oophori-tis, experimental immune ovarian failure.
