Summary

The dermatoglyphic findings in 87 patients with Turner syndrome are summarized. Comparisons are made between the 50 cases with 45,X karyotypes and the remaining 37 with different chromosomal abnormalities including 19 patients with an X long arm isochromosome cell line. The results indicate differences between the 45,X patients and the other chromosomal types which are in the same direction as the changes reported between Turner syndrome and normal controls.
