Abstract

Turner syndrome (TS) affects about one in 1,500 to 2,500 live-born females. One of the most prevalent and salient features of the syndrome is extremely short stature. Untreated women are approximately 20-21 cm shorter than normal women within their respective populations. Recombinant human growth hormone (hGH) has been used to increase growth and final height in women who have Turner syndrome.
