Women with Turner syndrome

Detailed Description:

In the literature cases of thrombosis in the venous system has been described in girls and women with Turner syndrome. By screening a group of women with Turner syndrome we wish to find out if this condition is more frequent in this patient population. Participants are examined with screening blood tests evaluating thromboembolic disturbances.
