About Author

When we see a female child with short stature or pubertal delay, think of Turner syndrome. Look for other findings like webbing of neck, a broad chest with widely spaced nipples and cubitus valgus. Look specially for cardiac anomalies like coarctation of aorta. Most of the girls with Turner syndrome have ovarian insufficiency and primary amenorrhoea. Endocrine and Metabolic disorders are common and best managed by a Pediatric Endocrinologist. A normal intelligence is observed in large majority of girls, but learning disabilities are common. Karyotype(45, XO) is the gold standard for confirmation of diagnosis.
