Turner Syndrome: Early Detection is Critical
2 of 30 : Current video

EmpowHER, in partnership with the Turner Syndrome Foundation, brings you this video in an effort to increase awareness of this all too common, but little known chromosomal genetic disorder, Turner Syndrome, which affects nearly 1 in every 2,000 girls.

Screening, early diagnosis and treatment are available and can make a huge difference in the lives of girls suffering from this condition. Today, as many as 80% of girls with Turner Syndrome will go undiagnosed well into their teens and later, when diagnosis can be clearly established at birth or at least within the first two years.

Dr. Henry Anhalt, Pediatric Endocrinologist at SUNY Downstate Medical School presents this video demonstrating the importance of early diagnosis in Turner Syndrome patients, along with mother and daughter, Shaz and Sarah Kramer.
