Turner Syndrome (TS) with karyotype 45, X is one of the most common cytogenetic abnormalities (1:2500 among newborn females). It is compatible with life, even though the great majority (more that 99%) of the conceptuses with karyotype 45, X are a spontaneously loss, usually before 28 weeks of gestation. Individuals with TS, they present extremely variable phenotypes. Despite their undifferentiated gonads, women usually have clearly female external and internal genitals. However, the uterus normally is small and its development depends on hormonal stimuli. Almost all girls with TS have short stature (98%) and ovarian failure. TS is characterized by a multisystemic involvement (cardiac, renal, orthopedic, ophthalmic and physical), responsible for a high morbidity and an increased mortality at all ages.
