New insights into the comorbid conditions of Turner syndrome: results from a long-term monocentric cohort study

Purpose: Many concerns regarding Turner syndrome are unanswered, including the long-term effects and, therefore, the correct treatment setting for adults. Methods The University Hospital of Bologna's Methods A total of 160 Italian patients with TS diagnosed from 1967 to 2010 were continuously and structurally monitored from the diagnosis to December 2019, using a standardized multidisciplinary monitoring system. Conclusions The study group was followed up for a median of 27 years. The onset of diabetes has ranged from 22 years for autoimmune diseases to 39 years for type 2 diabetes. Papillary thyroid carcinoma was the most common type of cancer, followed by skin cancer and cancer of the central nervous system. There were no reports of ischaemic heart disease, heart disease, stroke, or death. In addition, these results suggest the need for increased surveillance of particular types of cancer in TS, including thyroid carcinoma.

Turner syndrome: French National Diagnosis and Care Protocol (NDCP; National Diagnosis and Care Protocol)

Turner syndrome is a rare disorder in which one or both of one X chromosomes are missing from some or all cells. X isochromosome, a Y chromosome, X ring chromosome, X ring chromosome, or deletions of the X chromosome are less frequent. Based on a critical literature review and multidisciplinary consensus, the French National Diagnosis and Care Protocol intends to provide health professionals with detailed advice about patients's optimal management and care. Most of the X chromosome's biological features, particularly those in the pseudoautosomal regions, which normally do not participate in the physiological process of X inactivation, may also be involved. Multiple healthcare specialists are involved in the care of patients with TS.
