About Turner Syndrome

Turner Syndrome (TS) is a rare, random chromosomal disorder affecting more than 2 million individuals born female. TS is the second-most common genetic disorder, with 1 in 2,000 baby girls born with it annually.

TS could trigger many physical, cognitive, emotional, and social issues. Complications can involve the kidneys, heart, thyroid, diabetes, hearing, osteoporosis, infertility, pregnancy, visual-spatial skills, and executive function. It is estimated that 10 to 20% of all first-trimester miscarriages are related to TS. Only 1 to 2% of fetuses with TS survive to birth, and those who survive are truly miracles!
