Heredity of Turner Syndrome

Heredity of Turner Syndrome: Summary

Turner syndrome affects all races, nationalities, and regions of the world equally, and parents who have produced many unaffected children may still have a child with Turner syndrome. There are no known toxins or environmental hazards that increase the chances of Turner syndrome.
 
A woman with Turner syndrome has a low probability of being fertile, since the ovaries are negatively affected with Turner syndrome. However, if she does become pregnant and passes her normal X chromosome on to her offspring, no continuation of the syndrome is expected.
