Abstract


Turner syndrome is one of the most frequent chromosome disorders in clinical practice. It is characterized by a multisystemic involvement, responsible for a high morbidity and an increased mortality at all ages. Therefore it is essential that there is a continuous and integrated approach in reference centers to improve the quality of life and prevent early mortality.
