What is Turner Syndrome?

Turner syndrome is a genetic condition that affects females. It occurs when one of the X chromosomes is missing or partially missing. This results in a variety of developmental and medical problems. Females with Turner syndrome typically have short stature, delayed puberty, and infertility. 

The condition was first described in 1938 by Dr. Henry Turner, which is how it got its name. Turner syndrome can have significant impacts on a person’s physical and emotional well-being, but with proper management and support, individuals with Turner syndrome can lead full and fulfilling lives.
