Growth hormone treatment modalities in girls with Turner syndrome
The November 1938 issue of Endocrinology published a paper by the American physician Henry Turner which described seven females exhibiting certain physical features including sh0l1 stature, sexual infantilism, webbing of the neck, low posterior hairline, and increased carrying angle of the elbow. This syndrome now bears his name, although the Munich paediatrician Otto Ullrich had already described patients with similar physical characteristics in 1930. For this reason, German studies refer to this syndrome as Ullrich-Turner syndrome.
