Estrogen therapy timing influences age at menarche in Turner syndrome

March 28, 2017

In girls with Turner syndrome, a younger age at estrogen therapy initiation is associated with a longer time to menarche, whereas presence of a mosaic karyotype is associated with a shorter time to menarche, according to published findings.

Lisal J. Folsom, MD, a fellow in the section of pediatric endocrinology, Riley Hospital for Children, and the division of endocrinology and metabolism at Indiana University in Indianapolis, and colleagues evaluated medical records from 2007 to 2015 of 53 girls with Turner syndrome who had completed puberty (mean age at diagnosis, 6.4 years) to determine whether patient characteristics are associated with the timing of menarche.
