Cognitive and motor development during childhood in boys with Klinefelter syndrome
TLDR
The cognitive results from this large KS cohort may be related to atypical brain lateralization and have important diagnostic and psychoeducational implications and the difficulty in complex language processing, impaired attention and motor function in boys with KS may be missed.
Characterization of gsp-mediated growth hormone excess in the context of McCune-Albright syndrome.
TLDR
It was found that vision and hearing deficits were more common in patients with GH excess than in those without, and patients with a history of precocious puberty and GH excess who had reached skeletal maturity achieved normal adult height despite aHistory of early epiphyseal fusion.
Transition to young adulthood in Ullrich-Turner syndrome: neurodevelopmental changes.
TLDR
Results from this study indicated that females with UTS performed significantly less well than controls on measures of spatial/perceptual skills, visual-motor integration, affect recognition, visual memory, attentional abilities, and executive function, consistent with previous reports of cognitive abilities in adolescent UTS females.

TLDR
Although other common diagnosis and treatment variables contributed a small amount to the total variance in BP, postconceptional age was the primary determinant of BP in this population of infants.

TLDR
This work investigated the relationship between SHOX mutations, height deficit, and Madelung deformity to determine the contribution of SHOX haploinsufficiency to the LWD and Turner syndrome phenotypes and found that SHOX deletions or mutations accounted for all of the authors' LWD cases.
Normal vision despite narrowing of the optic canal in fibrous dysplasia.
TLDR
Prophylactic decompression of the optic nerve does not appear to be indicated on the basis of the presence of fibrous dysplasia on diagnostic images alone, since it does not correlate with visual loss.
Persistent cognitive deficits in adult women with Turner syndrome
TLDR
The cognitive phenotypes of adults with TS, with or without ovarian failure, are similar, indicating that estrogen replacement does not have a major impact on the cognitive deficits of adultswith TS.
Psychosocial Development in Adolescents with Turner Syndrome

Couning individuals with Turner syndrome and their families about the need to carefully develop and nurture social skills and relationships may prove useful in advancing the social adaptation of these young women.
