Abstract

Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome is a rare systemic connective tissue disorder characterized by craniosynostosis, skeletal abnormalities, infantile hypotonia, mild-to-moderate intellectual disability and cardiovascular anomalies. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome patient who developed a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm. The aneurysm grew rapidly necessitating emergent thoraco-abdominal aortic replacement. The postoperative course was uneventful, and a careful lifetime follow-up was planned.
