VELASCO, Harvy et al. Maternal-fetal complications in patients suffering from Turner syndrome: A report of two cases with oocyte donation. Rev Colomb Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2006, vol.57, n.2, pp. 116-122. ISSN 0034-7434.
Turner’s syndrome (TS) is the most frequent pathology compromising the sexual chromosomes, being caused by the complete or partial absence of chromosome X. The reproductive implications for these patients (i.e. infertility caused by early ovarian failure and gonad disgenesis) have suggested that the indicated management for this condition lies in anonymous ovodonation, followed by embryos being produced in vitro and their subsequent transfer, after suitable endometrial preparation. This article reports oocyte donation to two patients suffering from TS and their clinical implications for pregnancy: cephalo-pelvic imbalance due to small maternal size and cardiovascular complications producing lymphoedema, aortic dissection and preeclampsy.
