AIM To evaluate the effects of estrogen substitution on the uterine development in patients with Turner syndrome. METHOD 57 women, aged 18.1-41.5 years, were treated with estrogen from puberty induction. RESULTS In 21 women (37%), the uterus developed to >65 mm in length. The daily estrogen dose correlated with both uterine length (r = 0.29; p < 0.05) and Tanner breast stage (r = 0.44; p < 0.001). A negative correlation between age at artificial menarche and uterine length was found (r = -0… CONTINUE READING
