Turner syndrome is a chromosomal condition, which occurs when one of the two X chromosomes normally found in women is missing or incomplete. The disease alters the growth and development in females. The symptoms can vary among women who have Turner syndrome. Women with this condition tend to be shorter than average and are usually unable to conceive a child because of an absence of ovarian function. Some other features of this condition are extra skin on the neck (webbed neck), heart defects and kidney problems, puffiness or swelling (lymphedema) of the hands and feet, and skeletal abnormalities.
