Turner syndrome is a systemic disease requiring a multi-system management approach. This includes attention to the endocrine system, cardiovascular system, renal system, gastrointestinal system, ears, eyes, skeletal system, and skin, as well as to the psychology of the patient and the family. The primary care physician is central to the care of these patients. In addition to anticipating, diagnosing, and treating the various problems that may arise in patients with Turner syndrome, the primary care physician must coordinate the fairly large healthcare team needed for optimal care.
