Turner Syndrome

Turner Syndrome

Turner syndrome is a condition that alters development in females, resulting from a missing or incomplete sex chromosome. This condition may be diagnosed during infancy or early childhood and can cause a variety of medical and developmental problems such as failure to begin puberty, short stature, infertility, heart defects, and certain learning disabilities.

Turner syndrome occurs in about 1 in 2,500 female births worldwide but is common among pregnancies that do not survive to terms such as miscarriages and stillbirths.
