What is Turner Syndrome?

According to the Turner Syndrome Foundation, Turner Syndrome is a genetic condition that can only affect females in which a female does not have the usual pair of two X sex chromosomes. In the different variations of Turner syndrome, cells are missing all or part of an X chromosome. Most commonly, the affected girl has only one X chromosome (45XO). In other cases, girls have two X chromosomes, but one of them is incomplete (Turner mosaicism). Sometimes, a girl has some cells with two X chromosomes, but other cells have only one.
