    Abstract

    A growth chart for girls with Turner syndrome has been prepared using data from four published series of European patients, and evaluated using retrospective data on the heights of girls with Turner syndrome seen at this hospital. The results indicate that calculation of height standard deviation score from this chart allows a reasonable prediction of adult stature in any patient with Turner syndrome. In addition, the results indicate that while oestrogen treatment causes an initial acceleration of growth, it has no significant effect on adult height.
