MedlinePlus:35 Turner syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects a girl's development. the cause is a missing or incomplete x chromosome. girls who have it are short, and their ovaries don't work properly. other physical features typical of turner syndrome are short, "webbed" neck with folds of skin from tops of shoulders to sides of neck low hairline in the back low-set ears swollen hands and feet most women with turner syndrome are infertile. they are at risk for health difficulties such as high blood pressure, kidney problems, diabetes, cataracts, osteoporosis, and thyroid problems. doctors diagnose turner syndrome based on symptoms and a genetic test. sometimes it is found in prenatal testing. there is no cure for turner syndrome, but there are some treatments for the symptoms. growth hormone often helps girls reach heights that are close to average. hormone replacement can help start sexual development. assisted reproduction techniques can help some women with turner syndrome get pregnant. nih: national institute of child health and human development

MalaCards: Turner Syndrome, also known as monosomy x, is related to swyer syndrome and short stature, and has symptoms including short stature/dwarfism/nanism, webbed neck/pterygium colli and atrial septal defect/interauricular communication. An important gene associated with Turner Syndrome is HDAC8 (histone deacetylase 8). The compounds progestins and raloxifene have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, testes and skin.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Turner syndrome is a chromosomal condition that affects development in females. The most common feature of Turner syndrome is short stature, which becomes evident by about age 5. An early loss of ovarian function (ovarian hypofunction or premature ovarian failure) is also very common. The ovaries develop normally at first, but egg cells (oocytes) usually die prematurely and most ovarian tissue degenerates before birth. Many affected girls do not undergo puberty unless they receive hormone therapy, and most are unable to conceive (infertile). A small percentage of females with Turner syndrome retain normal ovarian function through young adulthood.

NIH Rare Diseases:44 Turner syndrome is a chromosomal disorder that usually affects development in females. symptoms differ among individuals, but may include shortened stature, infertility, extra skin on the neck (webbed neck), puffiness or swelling (lymphedema) of the hands and feet, skeletal abnormalities, heart defects, and kidney problems. females without turner syndrome have 2 full x chromosomes in each of their cells. an individual with turner syndrome is missing all or part of one x chromosome. although it is genetic, it is typically not inherited. treatment may include growth hormone therapy for short stature and estrogen therapy to help stimulate sexual development. assisted reproduction techniques can help some women with turner syndrome become pregnant. last updated: 6/18/2012
