Cardiovascular abnormalities are common in Turner syndrome. Coarctation of the aorta and aortic bicuspid valve are more commonly found. The presence of a subaortic membrane in patients with Turner syndrome has rarely been reported in the literature. We report a case of an isolated subaortic membrane responsible for severe sub valvular stenosis in a 26-year-old woman. The patient underwent surgical excision phase of the membrane under cardiopulmonary bypass. The post-operative course was uneventful.
