This paper describes a 12-year-old Japanese boy with coarctation of the aorta, renal hypoplasia, Turner/ Noonan surface anomalies, and a 46,XY karyotype. Although the patient might represent an exceptional case of Noonan syndrome, the combination of the somatic stigmata appears to be consistent with a mutation of the putative lymphogenic gene(s) for Turner somatic stigmata.
