NAGASAWA, Hiroyuki et al. XYY male with total anomalous pulmonary venous return and short stature. J. Pediatr. (Rio J.) [online]. 2003, vol.79, n.1, pp. 87-90. ISSN 0021-7557. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0021-75572003000100015.
Objective: to report a case of a 47 XYY male neonate with congenital heart disease and short stature. Description: this is the first case report of a 47 XYY male neonate associated with congenital heart disease (total anomalous pulmonary venous return) and small for gestational age. The infant was born at around 32 weeks of gestation with 1,134g. Intracranial hemorrhage and pulmonary high flow were discovered in the early neonatal period. Retarded physical and mental development was observed. The infant underwent a palliative ligation of the ductus arteriosus and a ventriculoperitoneal shunt operation, but died due to consequent heart failure at 19 months of age. Comments: this combination of XYY male and congenital heart disease may be fortuitous. However, we think it is important to report that there was a poor prognosis case of XYY male with congenital heart disease and short stature.
