genetic disease that produces sterile females due to monosomy for X chromosome; the ovaries are rudimentary or missing; other abnormalities include short stature, webbed neck, and a broad chest with widely spaced nipples---------------------------------------------------

Turner Syndrome;45, X Syndrome; Bonnevie-Ulrich Syndrome;

Chromosome X, Monosomy X; Gonadal Dysgenesis (45,X);

Gonadal Dysgenesis (XO); Monosomy X; Morgagni-Turner-Albright Syndrome; Ovarian Dwarfism, Turner Type; Ovary Aplasia, Turner Type; Pterygolymphangiectasia; Schereshevkii-Turner Syndrome; Turner-Varny Syndrome;

XO Syndrome; Turner syndrome is a rare chromosomal disorder of females characterized by short stature and the lack of sexual development at puberty; Other physical features may include a short neck with a webbed appearance, heart defects, kidney abnormalities, and/or various other malformations; Among affected females, there is also a heightened incidence of osteoporosis, type II diabetes, and hypothyroidism; There appears to be great variability in the degree to which girls with Turner syndrome are affected by any of its manifestations; Turner syndrome occurs when one of the two X chromosomes normally found in women is missing or incomplete; Although the exact cause of Turner syndrome is not known, it appears to occur as a result of a random error during the division (meiosis) of sex cells.
