The participant was noted to have a brain abnormality (agenesis of the corpus callosum) on a fetal ultrasound. Further testing during the pregnancy was positive for mosaic Turner syndrome.
At two days old, the participant began experiencing diarrhea. At 5 weeks old, she was admitted to the hospital for severe dehydration and 20-30 loose stools per day. The care team tried many different infant formulas and found that, while some lessened the participant’s diarrhea, none resolved the problem entirely.
