Good with monitoring: Turner syndrome (ts) results from a problem with the chromosomes and so there is no cure. However, the prognosis for ts can be good, with careful health monitoring and early treatment of problems that can occur. Many women with turner syndrome lead full and active lives and can expect a normal lifespan. Visit www.Turnersyndrome.Org for more info.
