Turner syndrome is a genetic condition that affects one in 2,000 female babies born each year. Girls with Turner syndrome may be born a normal size but may start to slip down the growth charts as they reach pre-school age and beyond. Puberty may also be delayed. Other symptoms may include:

  • Puffy hands and feet.
  • Upturned fingernails.
  • A wide short neck and broad chest.
  • Low set ears and hairline.
  • Dental problems, such as a high arched palate.
  • Hearing loss and ear infections.
  • Heart abnormalities.
  • Diabetes and hypothyroidism.
