See below: Turner syndrome is a genetic condition in which a female does not have the usual pair of two x chromosomes. Those with turner syndrome can have a normal life when carefully monitored by their doctor. There is no known way to prevent turner syndrome.

45 X/0 Pattern: At conception, one half of a set of 46 (23pairs) chromosomes (cms) is brought from egg & sperm.If the combination is missing one x of the sex cms, a girl is born with 45 instead of 46 cms.The loss can affect every cell in the body, resulting in a variety of heart, kidney, brain or other problems. It also may cause no specific problem & not be noticed until late childhood.Supportive care is needed
