Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is a recently recognized genetic aortic aneurysm syndrome characterized by the triad of hypertelorism, bifid uvula or cleft palate, and generalized arterial tortuosity with aneurysms and dissections throughout the arterial tree with a high risk of earlyonset aortic dissection but with no known myocardial involvement [1]. We report a child who was diagnosed as acute type A aortic dissection, a novel transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) receptor type I (TGFBR1) mutation, and impaired systolic function after urgent surgical repair.


LDS: Loeys-dietz Syndrome; TGFβ: Transforming Growth Factor β; TGFBR1: TGF Beta-receptor Type I; LVEF: Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction
