WHAT IS TURNER SYNDROME?
Turner syndrome is a chromosomal condition that affects girls and women with common conditions such as:
  • Delayed puberty
  • Heart defects
  • Puffy hands and feet
  • Learning difficulties (i.e. math)
  • Kidney, thyroid, and liver concerns
  • Hearing loss
  • Frequent ear infections
  • Social difficulties
  • Infertility due to nonfunctional ovaries
  • Scoliosis
  • Short stature (under 5 feet)
  • Many moles
  • Receding lower jaw
  • Low-set ears
  • Triangular face
  • Webbed neck
Turner syndrome can be diagnosed throughout the lifespan including adulthood with a test called karyotype. Currently, 50% of the girls born with Turner syndrome are not diagnosed until their pre-teen or teen years. These girls and women do suffer from infertility and other medical symptoms that require life-long care. Advances such as growth hormone and estrogen therapy have improved the lives of girls and women with Turner syndrome.
