Is XXY klinefelter's syndrome related at all to marfan's syndrome?

No: The two syndromes have some similar features, but they are different syndromes that are unrelated. Klinefelter syndrome is caused by ahaving at least one extra x chromosome in a person who has a y chromosome (normal male=46 xy, klinefelter=47xxy).

How should I know if I have klinefelter's syndrome?

Chromosomal analysis: Klinefelter's syndrome is strictly seen in males. It is a genetic disorder in which there is at least one extra x chromosome to a normal human male karyotype, for a total of 47 chromosomes rather than the 46 found in genetically normal humans.
The only reliable method of identification is chromosomal analysis. I hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

What is klienfelter (xxy) syndrome?

What is klienfelter (xxy) syndrome?

XXY: The klinefelter has a pattern of the sex chromosomes as XXY (with male features). The extra x comes from an egg that had 2 x's at conception when the male y was added. The resulting fetus with 47 chromosomes is compatible with life. The baby will grow up with male sex characteristics, but often a short penis and sterility by adolescence along with other issues. ...Read more

Then successful invitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection techniques are required for success. ...Read more

Is klinefelter's syndrome dominent or recessive?

Is klinefelter's syndrome dominent or recessive?

Error in formation: Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. During the formation of the egg, each pair splits and one of each travels to the egg. At conception, the sperm brings 22 + an X or Y & the new embryo now has 23 pairs (two of each). In Kleinfelter, the egg retains 2 X chromosomes instead of 1 & the sperm brings a Y.The fetus then has 23 pairs + the extra X. This is an error in formation, not an inherited trait ...Read more
