Turner syndrome affects women throughout their lives, with effects on their growth and development as well as fertility and cardiovascular health. The NICHD is at the forefront of research on Turner syndrome and its effects on women’s reproductive, cardiovascular, and psychosocial health.

The Institute also is sponsoring a longitudinal study on the genetics of Turner syndrome and was instrumental in developing a clinical practice guideline that outlines lifelong care for women and girls with Turner syndrome.
