We describe some antiferromagnetic systems which exhibit spin gaps. We also discuss the effect of doping one such system, namely, the spin-ladders, with holes. Some model antiferromagnetic systems with spin gap are reviewed for which exact results are available. Exact results for a doped spin-ladder model are also mentioned.
