The KS Story has been compiled by a person with Klinefelter’s Syndrome (karyotype: 47,XXY), from reputable medical, research and support group sources, and with the help and support of several UK and international scientists in the fields of biology, cytogenetics, endocrinology, neuroscience and sexology.

People w XXY are at an increased risk of developing diabetes, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmmune disorders, and certain mental health problems. Regular screening for these health problems is suggested. Although most males w XXY are infertile, many produce sperm and may be able to conceive with.

Introduction. 47,XXY, or Klinefelter syndrome, was initially described in by Dr. Harry Klinefelter, an adult endocrinologist, who identified a cohort of post-pubertal males presenting with infertility, hypogonadism, gynecomastia and increased gonadotropin levels ().An extra X chromosome in males was found to be the cause of Klinefelter syndrome in ().Cited by: XYY syndrome is a genetic condition in which a male has an extra Y chromosome.

There are usually few symptoms. These may include being taller than average, acne, and an increased risk of learning problems. The person is generally otherwise normal, including normal fertility. The condition is generally not inherited from a person's parents but rather occurs as a result of a random event during Complications: Autism spectrum disorder, ADHD.

If they did Followers: Klinefelter syndrome is a sex chromosome disorder in boys and men that results from the presence of an extra X chromosome in cells. People typically have 46 chromosomes in each cell, two of which are the sex chromosomes. Females have two X chromosomes (46,XX), and males have one X and one Y chromosome (46,XY).

Most often, boys and men with Klinefelter syndrome have the usual X and Y. The results included a thin, little book explaining what it was in diagrams & in medical terminology.

I had never even heard of 47 XXY syndrome, so I didn’t give it much thought. My husband & I kept it to ourselves & put it on the back burner. As time went by, I would go over the little book to try and get more understanding of 47 XXY syndrome. Klinefelter syndrome and its variants are the most common forms of sex chromosome aneuploidy, with a reported incidence of 1 in to 1 in live births.

This incidence may be increasing. The classic form of Klinefelter syndrome is associated with a 47,XXY karyotype and is caused by meiotic nondisjunction of the sex chromosomes.

Klinefelter syndrome (47, XXY karyotype) is the spectrum of phenotypic features resulting from a sex chromosome complement that includes two or more X chromosomes and one Y chromosome (Figure ).It results from meiotic nondisjunction occurring during gametogenesis of the egg or sperm with subsequent fertilization of an XX ovum by a Y bearing sperm, or fertilization of an X ovum by a sperm.

Klinefelter syndrome is the presence of two or more X chromosomes plus one Y, resulting in a phenotypic male. (See also Overview of Chromosomal Anomalies.) Klinefelter syndrome is the most common sex chromosome disorder, occurring in about 1/ live male births.

The extra X chromosomes are. Klinefelter syndrome is a chromosomal abnormality in males, where there are two or more extra chromosomes and one Y chromosome (47, XXY), is found with a frequency of 1 in live male births. For mXXY males, the most realistic prospects for fatherhood are by utilization of artificial insemination by donor or adoption Neoplasia There is a 1% lifetime risk for developing extragonadal germ cell tumors, usually in the mediastinum.

Klinefelter syndrome [KFS] is the most common numerical chromosomal abnormality and is the most common cause of azoospermia. It is found in 11% cases with azoospermia. Men wXXY [Figure 1] chromosomal complement are azoospermic due to seminiferous tubule dysgenesis, whereas mosaic cases with norXY cell line may be oligozoospermic.

Klinefelter's syndrome is the most common sex chromosome disorder and results in primary hypogonadism and infertility in men. The syndrome is caused by an additional X chromosomes resulting in a karyotype of 47, XXY. Synonyms: XXY syndrome, 47, XXY males, Epidemiology of Klinefelter's Syndrome.

For others, signs and symptoms may include learning disabilities, speech delay, low muscle tone (hypotonia), and being taller than expected.

47, XYY syndrome is caused by having an extra. XXYY syndrome is a sex chromosome anomaly in which males have an extra X and Y chromosome.

Human cells usually contain two sex chromosomes, one from the mother and one from the father. Usually, females have two X chromosomes (XX) and males have one X and one Y chromosome (XY).Other names: 48,XXYY Klinefelter syndrome.

XXY or Klinefelter syndrome is a chromosomal condition that affects male physical and cognitive development. The condition is caused by an extra X-chromosome being present in each cell - with a karyotype (chromosome complement) of 47,XXY instead of the typiXY male karyotype.

Klinefelter syndrome (KS) was first described by Dr. Harry Klinefelter, an endocrinologist, in He identified a group of adults with infertility, hypogonadism, gynecomastia, and increased gonadotrophin levels (Klinefelter, Reifenstein, & Albright, ).Inthese symptoms were linked to the extra X chromosome in these men (Jacobs & Strong, ).

Klinefelter syndrome (sometimes called Klinefelter's, KS or XXY) is where boys and men are born with an extra X chromosome. Chromosomes are packages of genes found in every cell in the body. There are 2 types of chromosome, called the sex chromosomes, that determine the genetic sex of a baby.

These are named either X or Y. Klinefelter syndrome increases the risk of developing extragonadal germ cell tumors and breast cancer.

Nondisjunction of sex chromosomes during maternal meiosis (53%) or paternal meiosis (47%) results in 47,XXY genotype classically, although variants such as XXYY, XXXY, and XXXXY, and mosaic patterns, such as XXX/XY, also exist. Klinefelter's syndrome is a frequent genetic sexual alteration in males, associated with XXY aneuploidy.

Several syndrome variants are caused by different X and Y polysomy and mosaicisms, including XXXXY condition described by some authors as Fraccaro's syndrome. Mosaics with three or more different chromosomal lines are very by: 1.

People normally have 46 chromosomes in each cell. Two of the 46 chromosomes, known as X and Y, are called sex chromosomes because they help determine whether a person will develop male or female sex characteristics.
