ABSTRACT
Turner syndrome is a disorder of females is characterized by the absence of all or part of a normal second sex chromosome. Turner syndrome occurs in 1 in 4000 live-born girls and approximately 5 to 10 percent of them have mosaic isochromosome 45,X/46,X,i(Xq). Turner syndrome is associated with reduced adult height and with gonadal dysgenesis, leading to insufficient circulating levels of female sex steroids and to infertility. Osteoporosis and high risk of fractures are features in adults with Turner syndrome. In this study, we present a delayed case of Turner syndrome with primary amenorrhea, short stature, osteoporosis and high risk of fractures. This case has ignored due to social and economic conditions, therefore we think that the patient can be considered for publication.
