Mousumi Gogoi* and Parul Dutta

ABSTRACT

Turner syndrome, also known as Monosomy X or 45X, is the most common of the sex chromosomal abnormalities in females. The missing chromosome is usually paternal and syndrome is not related to mothers’ age. In most cases conceptions with Turner syndrome are spontaneously aborted. In this present study, the patient was an adolescent female aged 14 years (chronological age), presented to the department of endocrinology with chief complaint of delayed menarche, short stature, and decreased hearing on right side. The patient was evaluated with X-ray, USG, CT and MRI, in the preoperative state which revealed classical features of Turner syndrome, with post ductal type of Coarctation of Aorta (CoA). The clinical and imaging findings were further corroborated with karyotyping, which revealed 45XO katyotype. Patient underwent Coarctoplasty with stenting for post- Ductal type CoA with large cobalt-chromium stent- ANDRA stent.

Keywords: Turner Syndrome (TS), Coarctation of Aorta (CoA), short stature, delayed menarche.
