Answer

Ask about specific signs associated with Turner syndrome, such as lymphedema, cardiac or renal congenital anomalies, and short growth pattern.

Determine the age of menarche. Menstrual history is important in postpubertal females.

For postpubertal females, inquire about the presence of galactorrhea or symptoms suggestive of androgen excess, such as acne or hirsutism.
