Poster Abstract
TS, a rare chromosomal disorder that affects females, is characterized by loss of one of the X chromosomes. Clinical manifestations vary, which include short stature, cardiovascular and renal organ dysfunction, and premature ovarian failure. Intelligence is usually not affected. TS is associated with autoimmune diseases, such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and celiac disease. Although there is no established association between TS and immunodeficiency, there are few case reports describing subjects with TS and hypogammaglobulinemia.
Case description:
A 41-year-old female with TS, hypothyroidism, and recurrent otitis media as a child presents with severe vitamin deficiencies including: iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. She denies any history of abscesses, sinopulmonary or GI infections. Physical examination demonstrates a short-statured, cooperative female with normal vital signs, webbed neck, holosystolic murmur and no other abnormalities.
