Causes

Turner syndrome is caused by the complete or partial absence of one of the X chromosomes in females. This chromosome abnormality can occur randomly during the formation of reproductive cells in either parent, or it can occur as a random event during early fetal development. 

In some cases, a female with Turner syndrome may have some cells with two X chromosomes and other cells with only one. This is known as mosaicism. The exact cause of the chromosome abnormality is not fully understood, and there are no known environmental factors that increase the risk of Turner syndrome.
