Turner syndrome is a chromosomal condition that affects development in females. Women with this condition tend to be shorter than average and are usually infertile, or unable to conceive a child, because of a loss of ovarian function. Other features of Turner syndrome vary among affected females and can include webbing of the neck, puffiness or swelling (lymphedema) of the hands and feet, skeletal abnormalities, heart defects, and kidney problems.
A cystic hygroma is a thin-walled, sac-like structure filled with lymph. It occurs most commonly in the head and neck area and often appears as a soft bulge under the skin.
