New research reveals high risks associated with egg donation to women with Turner’s syndrome

Turner’s syndrome is a chromosomal disorder which affects approximately 1 in 2500 women. Most women are born with two X chromosomes, but a woman with Turner’s syndrome has only a single X chromosome, which leads to a variety of health problems. These include a greater tendency to heart disease, skeletal problems, and short stature (which is often treated with growth hormone). In addition, women who grow up with Turner’s syndrome are normally infertile.
