Turner Syndrome Karyotype

Turner syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects a girl’s development. Its cause is a missing or incomplete X chromosome.

 

Karyotype (pronounced KAR-ee-uh-tahyp) is the number and appearance of chromosomes in the cell. It is a kind of blood test, looking at the complete set of chromosomes of an individual.

 

Thus, Karyotype can serve as a final diagnosis to determine the chromosomal characteristics of the cells in a female’s body. The test will show if one of the X chromosomes is partially or completely missing or if there are any structural differences in the X chromosomes.
