Chromosomes holds the genetic keys to all of the functions of body. Turner syndrome is a condition that affects approximately 1 in 200 females.Turner syndrome occurs when both of the X chromosomes normally found in women are missing. Chromosomes are the deoxyribonucleic acid strands found in every cell in the body. The X chromosomes may be completely missing or only partially present, in Turner syndrome.
