clinical manifestation that results in human females with the karyotype 45,X (monosomy X). Usually consists of underdeveloped female secondary sex characteristics and sterility.
A genetic defect wherein females are born lacking an X chromosome, resulting in the failure to develop ovaries.
a human clinical syndrome resulting from monosomy for the X chromosome in the female, which gives a 45, XO chromosome set for the female. These females fail to develop secondary sex characteristics and usually are short, infertile and mentally deficient.
Rare chromosomal abnormality of the female. Turner syndrome principally results in abnormal development of the ovaries and short stature. Women with this condition are sterile.
a disorder in females marked by the absence of one X chromosome, typically characterized by ovarian failure, genital tissue defects, cardiac problems, and short stature.
A chromosomal abnormality in women in whom only one X chromosome is present instead of the normal two. The condition is characterized by growth abnormalities such as dwarfism and underdeveloped reproductive organs. Learning problems and mild mental retardation may be present. A smear of scrapings from inside the mouth may show evidence of this condition. Culture and chromosomal analysis of fetal cells from amniotic fluid can forecast this syndrome.
A congenital condition in females designated by a 45,X genotype. Turner syndrome is a genetic abnormality caused by the complete or partial absence of one of the normal two X sex chromosomes.
A syndrome with only one sex chromosome (XO) but phenotypical appearance of a female.
An abnormal human female phenotype produced by the presence of only one X chromosome (XO).
Also known as Monosomy X, Turner syndrome is the result of a missing X chromosome in a female. Although the rate of miscarriage and stillbirth is very high, those who are liveborn generally good health, a normal life span and normal intelligence.
A combination of health problems caused by the absence of one sex chromosome, leaving a single X chromosome, or 45 total.
Rare chromosomal disorder which affects females. It is characterized by short stature, lack of sexual development, broad chest with widely spaced nipples, webbed neck, congenital hear defects, and kidney abnormalities.
Turner syndrome encompasses several chromosomal abnormalities, of which monosomy X is the most common. It occurs in 1 out of every 2500 female births. Instead of the normal XX sex chromosomes for a female, only one X chromosome is present and fully functional.
