BACKGROUND: genetic syndrome and Speech, Hearing and Language Pathology findings. PURPOSE: to describe the clinical and speech, hearing and language manifestations in subjects with Turner syndrome. CONCLUSION: twenty-three articles on Turner' syndrome were collected, of which 7 described hearing and its alterations in these subjects, 6 described the receptive and/or expressive language and praxis, 5 described the psychological and cognitive aspects, besides those, 28 articles referred to the clinical manifestations. Through the literature research it was observed that speech, hearing and language manifestations of Turner syndrome are little studied and, within Speech, Hearing and Language Pathology, hearing manifestations such as hearing loss and ear infections are the most studied, unlike the issues of praxis and language reception/expression.
