It is represented by the absence of all or part of the normal second sex chromosome and physical features including short stature, webbed neck, cubitus valgus, pterygium colli, low hairline, edema of the hands and feet, and shield chest. Clinical pictures and karyotype of Acehnesse patients with Turner syndrome are presented in this study. The patients involved in the study were those who came to an endocrinology clinic in a tertiary care center.

Conclusion: All patients with Turner syndrome had amenorrhea,  short stature, bone deformity and underdeveloped primary dan secondary sexual characteristic. Only one case has monosomy X (45, XO), a mosaic chromosomal component was present in the rest of them (45, X with mosaicism).
