There are approximately 7,800 girls and women in Canada that have been diagnosed with Turner Syndrome
Turner Syndrome (TS) is a rare condition that affects females only. It is identified by a difference in genetic makeup of those who are affected. It is characterized by the absence of all or part of the X chromosome in some or all of the cells of the body. The most consistent features of TS are short stature and lack of ovarian development. Some individuals with Turner Syndrome may have other challenges such as cardiovascular abnormalities, kidney, hearing, osteoporosis, diabetes and cognitive function and educational issues.
