Turner Syndrome

Alternate Names : Monosomy X, Ullrich-Turner Syndrome, 45, X Gonadal Dysgenesis

Turner Syndrome | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A healthcare provider may suspect that a newborn has Turner syndrome if the baby is small and has puffy hands and feet. In older females, underdeveloped ovaries may lead her doctor to suspect Turner syndrome. While measurement of certain hormones are useful, chromosome analysis is the definitive diagnostic test.
