About this book

Comprehensive and practical, this is a unique and multidisciplinary resource for the clinician caring for the girl or woman with Turner syndrome. Although approximately one in 2000 women are affected, many have not been diagnosed; as the advent of prenatal genetic testing becomes more prevalent, the diagnosis of Turner syndrome will be made much more frequently. There is therefore a greater need for this single source that provides the clinician with the information required to care for this multifaceted disorder. 
The opening chapters discuss the biology, genetics and current standard of care for females with Turner syndrome in order to provide proper background and context for the remaining chapters. The main section of the book, taking a body system approach, is comprised of chapters written by an expert in his or her subspecialty and will discuss pathophysiology and diagnosis, as well as therapeutic options. Reproductive, cardiac, renal, endocrine, neurologic, musculoskeletal, and sensory issues and symptoms associated with Turner syndrome are all covered in detail. Additional chapters describe current resources available to both caregiver and patient as well as future directions for research and management. 
Currently, there are no similar books on the market that take an all-inclusive, multidisciplinary approach in the care of individuals with Turner syndrome. As such, this book should be the standard of care for management of this challenging and multifaceted condition.

Reviews

“Clinicians who care for individuals with Turner syndrome will find this book extremely useful and engaging. It is a must-have book for healthcare providers and ancillary interventionists involved in the care of individuals with Turner syndrome. … There is no comparison in the literature to this work due to not only the comprehensive coverage of Turner syndrome, but also the unique format that this book follows.” (Luis F Escobar, Doody's Book Reviews, December 4, 2020)
