Sowinska-Przepiera Elzbieta , Koziolek Monika , Osowicz-Korolonek Lilianna , Poblocki Jakub , Patalong-Nowak Martyna , Syrenicz Anhelli

Turner syndrome (TS), resulting from complete or partial loss of X chromosome, occurs in 1 per 2000-2500 liveborn female neonates. Most patients with TS, especially those untreated with growth hormone, present with osteoporosis or osteopenia, and are at increased risk of bone fractures. Available evidence suggests that depletion of bone mass may be associated with inadequate level of physical activity, and consequently, with too low muscle mass and strength. The aim of the stu...
