Is it possible for a mother with triple x syndrome to give birth to a klinefelter son?

Is it possible for a mother with triple x syndrome to give birth to a klinefelter son?

Chromosomal defect: Klinefelter syndrome - a male with an extra x chromosome occurs when chromosomes fail to separate very early in development. So it is caused by a developmental issue and is not inherited. There is nothing that suggests a trisomy x woman is more likely to have a klinefelter child, but she has the same risk as other women. A geneticist can give you more information about potential risks. ...Read more
