Abstract

In patients with Turner's syndrome, there is a relatively high incidence of gastrointestinal bleeding due to telangiectasias of the intestine. Despite the importance of preoperative diagnosis of the lesion in planning surgical treatment, the related angiographic findings have never been reported. We have studied one patient in whom the diagnosis was established by preoperative angiography.
