A 45,X karyotype diagnostic of Turner syndrome was found in a girl aged 11 years and 8 months hospitalized for growth deficiency. The patient had undergone decompressive craniotomy for craniosynostosis at the age of three. Roentgenologic findings led to a second surgical procedure consisting of bilateral coronal and parasagittal craniotomy. Endocrinologic investigations before and after surgery were normal. No evidence of cortical atrophy or ventricular dilatation were found on postoperative computed tomography studies. Follow-up evaluations of neurologic and psychologic status were normal. This is the first report of craniosynostosis associated with Turner syndrome.
