Turner Syndrome is a condition that only affects women, and occurs when one X chromosome is partially or completely missing. Turner Syndrome is the result of a random chromosomal abnormality that occurs before or during fertilization. Most individuals with Turner Syndrome are short in height. If the individual is diagnosed before they stop growing, hormone therapy can be utilized to allow the girl to grow taller and undergo puberty. Other symptoms include a low hairline at the back of the neck, abnormal bone development, drooping eyelids, kidney problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, and thyroid problems. Most individuals are infertile due to ovarian tissue degeneration before birth. Turner syndrome is diagnosed by examining a karyotype. Turner Syndrome cannot be cured, but specific symptoms can be treated, especially if the condition is recognized during early childhood.
