Advances in reproductive medicine using oocyte donation have made it possible for women with Turner syndrome (TS) to achieve successful pregnancies. These pregnancies carry substantial fetal and maternal risks, with hypertensive disorders or pregnancy and fetal growth restriction common, and an increased risk of aortic dissection, sometimes fatal, for the woman. Careful prepregnancy assessment and fetal and maternal vigilance during pregnancy is a necessary prerequisite for a successful outcome. We present a case of a woman with Turner syndrome achieving a successful pregnancy from donor oocyte and review the relevant literature.
