Gonadal Dysgenesis with Cor Pulmonale
The clinical and pathologic features of a 37-year-old patient with Turner's syndrome are described. Dyspnea developed in the third decade and respiratory signs and symptoms finally dominated the clinical picture, so that the case appeared terminally as one of anoxic cor pumonale. The heart failure is considered to be related to the kyphoscoliosis present as one of the skeletal deformities of the syndrome.
