    Advertisements



    A 16 yo girl presents to the your clinic b/c she has not started her period. On physical examination, you notice that she has webbing of the neck and a broad chest. Also, she is 4'5" tall. Her past medical/surgical history reveals that she had to repair a coarctation of the aorta when she was younger. For her condition, what stage in the genetic cycle is there an error?

    a. Anaphase
    b. Metaphase
    c. Meiosis
    d. Prophase

    C, this is Turner's syndrome, XO, result of nondisjuction during meiosis.
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.
