Aims: Turner syndrome (TS) patients have phenotypical variable presentations and they are more susceptible to endocrine, auto-immune, and structural anomalies. Typical clinical characteristics are short stature and premature ovarian insufficiency. Patients with TS show a typical cranial-facial morphology with bi-maxillary bi-retrusion, high-arched palate, micrognathia, and class II malocclusion. Aim of our study is to present the orthopedic-orthodontic treatment approach of a young TS patient and data of stability after 7 years. Methods and results: A careful analysis of anamnestic data was performed. After extraoral and intraoral examination, cephalometric measurements and examination of models, appropriate orthopedic-orthodontic appliances were positioned in order to correct skeletal alterations due to primary pathology as much as possible. Consistent improvements were observed after the treatment. Clinical and radiographic follow-up at 7 years showed a net improvement of head posture and stability of the occlusal results. Conclusions: An early diagnosis and appropriate orthopedic-orthodontic intervention allow to simplify the management of TS patients and provide satisfactory and stable results.

Abstract

Aims: Turner syndrome (TS) patients have phenotypical variable presentations and they are more susceptible to endocrine, auto-immune, and structural anomalies. Typical clinical characteristics are short stature and premature ovarian insufficiency. Patients with TS show a typical cranial-facial morphology with bi-maxillary bi-retrusion, high-arched palate, micrognathia, and class II malocclusion. Aim of our study is to present the orthopedic-orthodontic treatment approach of a young TS patient and data of stability after 7 years. Methods and results: A careful analysis of anamnestic data was performed. After extraoral and intraoral examination, cephalometric measurements and examination of models, appropriate orthopedic-orthodontic appliances were positioned in order to correct skeletal alterations due to primary pathology as much as possible. Consistent improvements were observed after the treatment. Clinical and radiographic follow-up at 7 years showed a net improvement of head posture and stability of the occlusal results. Conclusions: An early diagnosis and appropriate orthopedic-orthodontic intervention allow to simplify the management of TS patients and provide satisfactory and stable results.
