Abstract

Turner's syndrome is a genetic disorder of the sex chromosomes (e.g., 45,X or 45,X/46,XX) that manifests as various congenital anomalies. Despite its numerous extragonadal manifestations and frequent accompanying abnormalities in liver function tests, liver cirrhosis associated with Turner's syndrome has not been reported in Korea. Moreover, pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) have rarely been reported in association with liver cirrhosis, but there have been no reports of PAVMs occurring in cryptogenic liver cirrhosis associated with Turner's syndrome. We report a case of PAVM that occurred in cryptogenic liver cirrhosis associated with Turner's syndrome.
