A case of idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis in a girl with phenotypic Turner's syndrome is reported. The coincidence of these rare anomalies, reported only once before, is unlikely to occur by chance. Essential clinical features leading to early diagnosis of idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis in infancy are presented. Surgical treatment when the child weighed 15.9 kg gave satisfactory results at 18-month follow-up study.
