We describe two Turner patients suffering from severe essential hyperhidrosis. Since both disorders are rare (1 in 5000 live female births for Turner syndrome and approximately 1 in 1000 persons for essential hyperhidrosis), our finding of two patients with these disorders in a total of 150 essential hyperhidrosis patients may suggest that this association is more frequent in Turner syndrome than previously thought.
