Conclusions Patients with Turner's syndrome require complex multidisciplinary medical treatment. The team of specialists should include: endocrinologist, cardiologist, otolaryngologist, and gynaecologist. The results of our study demonstrate that a plastic surgeon should become an integral part of this team. Correction of external disfigurements improves the patient's appearance, and thus enhances acceptance of the child by peers. It also decreases the fear of rejection in adolescence and improves the quality of life in adult patients. (Source: Pediatria Polska)
