Yes: There is wide variation in the presentation of turner syndrome. Turner syndrome is caused by the absence of one x chromosome. Sometimes, a person can have mosaicism, which means that the x chromosome is only missing from some chromosomes, not all. People with mosaicism tend to have more subtle presentations. The answer should come from the karyotype (chromosome analysis.).

If the genetic test: Shows that your daughter has turner syndrome, she will need to see a variety of medical subpecialists, as well as those she sees for crohn's disease. She may benefit from therapy for self-esteem issues. If she struggles in math, she may benefit from school testing ; accomodations. I found no ts support group in sweden, but http://www.Turnersyndrome.Org has facts ; resources if you need them.
