Turner Syndrome Growth Chart


Turner's Syndrome is a rare chromosomal disorder of females occurring once in 2500 births characterized by short stature and the lack of sexual development at puberty. Other physical features may include a webbed neck, heart defects, kidney abnormalities, and/or various other malformations. Normally, females have two X chromosomes. In cases of Turner's Syndrome, however, one X chromosome is missing from the cells (45,X). Although the exact cause of Turner's Syndrome is not known, it is believed that the disorder may result from an error during the division (meiosis) of a parent's sex cells.
