Abstract

BACKGROUND: Noonan syndrome is a very rare disorder; its prevalence is 1/1,000-2,500 births. The special facial features, short stature, eventual cardiac anomalies and familiar history are the most important characteristics of the diagnosis. CASE: A Noonan syndrome patient delivered a healthy infant after a complicated delivery. The delivery followed 3 unsuccessful pregnancies. The previous pregnancies were terminated before the 24th gestational week because of general fetal hydrops as well as other malformations. CONCLUSION: In the prenatal care of a patient with Noonan syndrome the genetic and obstetric aspects are equally important. In establishing the diagnosis, ultrasonography is of utmost importance. As in our case, complications after cesarean section highlight the higher risk of delivery in women with Noonan syndrome.
