Answer

Turner syndrome is not an inherited disorder, and the recurrence risk is low.

Because of infertility, the syndrome is rarely passed to offspring.

Consultation is helpful when the condition is diagnosed in utero or when Turner syndrome is suspected in the setting of a normal peripheral blood karyotype.

Patients should be tested for the presence of Y-chromosomal material using a Y-centromeric probe.
