Turner Syndrome Program

Welcome to the Turner Syndrome Program

Welcome to the Turner Syndrome Program at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a program designed specifically for girls with Turner syndrome and their families.

About Turner syndrome

Turner syndrome (TS) is a genetic disorder that affects girls and results in a variety of health problems ranging from short stature and lack of pubertal development to heart defects. With diagnosis, treatment and ongoing education and support, many girls with Turner syndrome lead healthy, happy and independent lives. Learn more about Turner syndrome.
