Turner's Syndrome

Post by TheVirus » Tue Jul 13, 2010 3:06 am

Hi guys! It's been a long time. I have a consult. A relative of mine has a mild form of Turner's Syndrome and she wants to have a child in the future but does not want the child to inherit the disease. I wonder if you could suggest some methods for her to get a healthy child. Thanks.

It depends upon the mechanism of their particular condition.

REading this it seems that inheritance will probably not be a problem, as sterility is very likely to be a consequence of the syndrome. But I might be wrong.
