The structure of turbulent line vortices is examined. A general argument is constructed to show that the vortex must develop an overshoot of circulation if it entrains fluid at a rate greater than that due to molecular diffusion. A weak hypothesis on the distribution of Reynolds stress leads to the logarithmic profile of Hoffman and Joubert and an estimate of the maximum Reynolds stress. The results of a turbulence model due to Saffman are presented and shown to be poor.
