Timing of error: At conception, the embryo begin duplicating the chromosomes (chms) donated by egg & sperm to form the 23 chromosome pairs. If one x chm didn't make it, you will only have a turner pattern (45 chms xo). If a normal xx pattern starts but an x is lost after several divisions the mosaic is created by having one normal 46xx & another 45xo cell lines replicating throughput the body. ...Read more

Possible mosaic turner syndrome. Please explain it?

Variation of Theme: Most females have 2 x chromosomes as part of their genetic make-up in all cells. In classic ts females are born with 1 x chromosome in most or all cells. Patients who are mosaic are those who may be missing just part of an x or they could have some cells with 2 x's and others with only 1 x. There are other variations. Mosaic ts patients are usually not as severely affected as classic ts patients. ...Read more
