The authors present a case of an acute myocardial infarction in a patient with Turner syndrome, leading to the death of the patient. An emphasis is put on the need of a thorough examination of cardiovascular system, specialized on congenital heart disease including aortic dilatation with the risk of dissection, and early development of ischemic heart disease. Regular monitoring as well as adequate therapy in patients suffering from this genetically determined disorder is recommended.
