We report on a 4- years- old female patient with a karyotype 46,X,i(X)q (95%) /45,X0 (5%), with short stature, developmental delay and iridocyclitis, a rare autoimmune manifestation in variant Turner’s syndrome group. Molecular analysis allowed characterization of the isochromosome as of paternal origin and disclosed loss of heterozygosity for PAR1 SHOX region. X-inactivation studies indicate that the isochromosome is almost completely methylated and inactive.
