Can males have turner syndrome? Like if a male was born with part of his x chromosome missing?
This site will answer that question:
how do i recognize someone with turner's syndrome?
I am not a biologist but will attpe[t an answer based upon internet findings. We are short-staffed in the biology area here.
No, males cannot have Turner syndrome. Their Y sex chromosome prevents it from happening. Females with one X chromosome and NO fully functional second X chromosome get the syndrome.
