Cerebral Bleed in Turner's Syndrome: A Rare Presentation

Dr. Urvee Swaika [2] | Dr. Dhruvi Amrutiya | Dr. Priyanka Amonkar | Dr. Jeetendra Gavhane

Abstract: We report an unusual case of a 13 year old female with CT Brain findings of intraventricular and thalamic bleed, with short stature, diagnosed as Turner syndrome on karyotyping (mosaic pattern). For decades, repeated epidemiologic observations have been made regarding the inverse relationship between stature and cardiovascular disease, including stroke. Some cases of cerebral hemorrhage have been reported among patients with Turner syndrome. In most of these cases, it resulted from hypertension with the cause being renovascular hypertension. Notably, our patient did not have hypertension, still developed a bleed. Very few cases of intracranial hemorrhage without hypertension have been reported, with the probable cause being a connective tissue defect.
