In 15% of the cases Trner's syndrome is associated with cardiac congenital malformations, the most frequent anomalies are the aortic coartaction and the defect of interventricular septum. The authors introduce two cases of deceased women affected by Turner's syndrome caused by intrapericardic dissection of the ascending aorta.
