What is Known:
• Girls with Turner syndrome are short in relation to parental heights, with untreated final height approximately 20 cm below female population mean.
• Measured parental height is more accurate than reported height.
What is New:
• In a dedicated Turner clinic, there was 85% sensitivity when comparing patient height standard deviation score at first accurate measurement beyond 1 year of age with the lower end of the parental target range standard deviation.
• However, measured height in both parents had been recorded in only 54.6% of the Turner girls attending the clinic. This indicates the need to improve the quality of growth assessment in tertiary care.
