What Is 
Turner Syndrome?
Turner Syndrome (TS) is a chromosomal condition that describes girls and women with common features that are caused by a or partial absence of the second sex chromosome. The syndrome is named after Dr. Henry Turner, who was among the first to describe its features in the 1930's. TS occurs in approximately 1 of 2,500 females born and in as many as 10% of all miscarriages.
Turner Syndrome may be diagnosed throughout the life span including adulthood, if signs are subtle.
More information can be found at the Turner Syndrome Society of the United States website: www.turnersyndrome.org
