Turner Syndrome Articles
Turner syndrome occurs in approximately one out of every 2,000 live female births. The syndrome is characterized by the partial or complete absence of one X chromosome. It is reported that more than 50% of cases have a 45,X karyotype. Another 20%-35% have mosaic karyotypes. Other karyotypes include those with various structural abnormalities.
