Can anyone explain how individuals with Turner's can have a 46XY karyotype, in addition to the commoner 46XO/XX?

Thanks!

i dont know exactly, but i think that it results during the mitosis of the early embryo . by assuming that the embryo is XXY , and by nondisjunction of chromosomes during mitosis we will end up with XY and XO chromosomal patterns. or maybe it is XY and then there will be deletion of chromosome Y.

I know that this is extremely silly as this is klinefilter not turner, but that's what my sleepy mind came with, sorry !!
