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 female is born with 45 instead of 46 cms, to reflect the loss.The lost cms can effect 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 lat childhood.
