Low bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with Turner syndrome (TS) has been reported in a considerable number of previous studies. Cortical and trabecular bone have been involved. Osteoporosis can be overdiagnosed in TS patients with a short stature unless BMD measurements are adjusted for body size. Optimization of bone health in girls with TS requires a healthy active lifestyle, including adequate calcium, vitamin D, and hormonal replacement therapy, according to consensus guidelines.
