Abstract

Background: Studies on fertility in women with Turner syndrome have shown that spontaneous pregnancies occur in about 2-7% of patients. Fertility problems and obstetrical complications are frequently observed in untreated patients with celiac disease. We report the case of a patient, affected by Turner syndrome and celiac disease, in whom a spontaneous pregnancy occurred. Case: One patient affected by Turner syndrome at the age of 30 yr conceived spontaneously. Celiac disease was diagnosed during pregnancy. The pregnancy progressed uneventfully. After 39 weeks of gestation, she vaginally delivered a normal male infant. Conclusion: Our patient had a successful pregnancy, giving birth to a healthy child, although she presented two pathological conditions affecting fertility and pregnancy outcome: Turner syndrome and celiac disease.
