What is turner syndrome?

Instead of having 2 X chromosomes (XX), one X chromosome is partially or completely missing (X). It occurs randomly and only in women. A number of organ systems can be affected, such as the ovaries, heart, etc.

Symptoms of turner syndrome

  • Long intervals between periods e.g. 39 days or more

  • Abnormal menstrual cycles e.g. too early or too late

  • Shorter than other children of similar age

  • Late or incomplete puberty

  • Puffy hands, which when pressed form a depressed area for a few seconds only

Questions your doctor may ask to check for turner syndrome

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose turner syndrome

  • Is your menstrual cycle infrequent e.g. longer than 39 days?

  • Do you have abnormal menstrual cycles e.g. too early or too late

  • Are (or were) you shorter than other children around your age?

  • Have you had late or missed puberty, late development of sexual characteristic?

  • When you press on the swelling on back of your hand and let go, does the skin bounce back right away without remaining depressed?

Treatment for turner syndrome

Girls with Turner syndrome receive hormone therapy to promote growth and development. Other treatments depend on the symptoms that occur. While there is no cure, with treatment it's possible to lead a normal life.
