Abstract

Turner syndrome is a pan-ethnic congential disorder caused by the partial or complete absence of one of the X chromosomes in females. Development of secondary sexual characteristics or menarche or spontaneous conception in Turner syndrome requires hormonal replacement therapy. Only a very few cases have been documented with spontaneous menarche with Turner syndrome. In this report, we are presenting a case of Turner syndrome, along with thyroid dysfunction who had spontaneous menarche.  

Keywords: Spontaneous puberty, Spontaneous menarche, Turner syndrome.
