GIRL’S GROWTH FROM AGE 2-20
This chart shows the range of height in girls aged between 2 and 20. Madeleine was so short for her age that she is below the lowest line on the graph. This means she was below the shortest 3% (or less) of girls aged 4. It is unclear at when the age is sampled so it could theoretically be out by up to six months.
GIRL’S GROWTH FROM AGE 2-20 – TURNER’S SYNDROME
This chart shows the range of height in girls aged between 2 and 20 who have the rare condition called Turner’s Syndrome. 1 in 2500 girls will be born with this condition. The key characteristics of Turner’s Syndrome are short stature and delayed growth. Some girls with Turner’s syndrome have characteristic behavioural traits that are sometimes mistaken for autism. They can also be “cry babies” and will cry for hours with colic-like symptoms. It is unknown if Madeleine was tested for Turner’s Syndrome but it is a known condition that can readily explain some of the reported and alleged physical attributes of Madeleine.
There is no “cure” for Turner’s Syndrome. Assuming none of the undesirable characteristics are present (heart and kidney troubles), then the only real treatment is to administer human growth hormone (HGH) on a daily basis. This treatment should ideally start in infancy and continue to puberty. Some press reports mentioned a syringe being found in Madeleine’s bedroom. It could quite easily be a discarded syringe used for this treatment.
This site emphasises that it does not know if Madeleine had this condition or not. The chart here is for factual reference and readers will have to make up their own conclusions about these observations:
