Good online sites: Xxx and xyy have relatively little impact on those who have them and are usually incidental findings -- this is actually true despite the hoopla over xyy. I have three physician colleagues who have turner's xo and do fine. http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/ is really good (thanks uncle sam).
