Background: Turner syndrome (TS) associates with decreased bone mineral density and altered bone geometry, a risk factors leading to increased fracture rate. Although hypogonadism or SHOX gene haploinsufficiency are the probable causes, the exact mechanism remains unclarified. Particularly, the muscle function as an important determinant of bone strength has yet not been widely studied in TS patients.Objective and hypotheses: We hypothesised there is mus...
