Red Man Syndrome
Sometimes: A familial form of WPW syndrome has been reported as an autosomal dominant trait. 3.4% have a 1st degree relative with preexcitation syndrome. However, this claims are based on small studies. Two genetic studies of three families, found abnormalities in chromosome 7. Missense mutation were identified in the PRKAG2 gene which encodes the gamma -2 regulatory subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Sadly, no.: See http://www.klinefeltersyndrome.org for information on associated medical & developmental problems. KS is usually caused by an extra X Chromosome in each cell of the body (47,XXY), although variants exist.

Fiance has issues ejaculating, has klinefelter's syndrome. No e.D., testosterone treatment ongoing, 23 yrs old. Anything that could explain this?
Unrelated: Maybe 4% of people have gilbert's, a mild treatment-worse-than-the-disease kink in bilirubin metabolism that's usually just a glitch on a lab report; you can confirm it (if you think it's worthwhile) by going hungry for a day or two -- gilbert's folks get a little jaundiced. It's unrelated to your acne -- today all acne is treatable with prescription medications. Glad you're proactive, good luck. ...Read more

What is considered abnormal retic count for a 70 yrs man with macrocytic anemia? His Hb is 9. His retic count .85% and retic shape is normal.
Depends.: Retic count should be 1% with a normal Hgb. For a 70 y/o male, that would be about 13. As Hgb goes down young red cells (retics) should go up to correct the deficit. In this case about 2.5 - 3% at least. 0.85% shows poor RBC production. With macrocytosis (large RBCs) consider B12, folate (folic acid) deficiency, certain drugs, liver disease, low thyroid, myelodysplastic syndrome & other bone marrow disease ...Read more
My 19 yo daughter has was born with Cutis Marmataka Telangiectasia Congenita , she is 14 wks pregnant and having re occuring blood noses could this be?
Pregnancy nose bleed: Nose bleeds are common, and even more common during pregnancy. They can be worse if the air is dry (use a humidifier), and brought on by heavy nose blowing (be gentle) or by manipulation (don't pick), or by high blood pressure (which her doctor should be checking anyway). If there is a spot in the nose causing repeated bleeding, the doctor can cauterize it to prevent more bleeding. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

my son ( 6 year old ), who has thalassemia minor, has reticulocyte count of 7. Is it normal for somebody of this age withthalassemia minor.?
Yes: The reticulocytes are immature red cells. They are usually about 1% of the circulating red cell population. They are elevated in conditions of rapid blood turnover such as beta thalassemia. It is appropriate to establish a "normal" for each beta thal patient so variations can be properly judged. His typical reticulocyte count should be established (4-5% is norm). 7% could be alright for him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctors klienfelter syndrome Is it possible that person have penis of 6.5 inch egg shape and large testis in some patient with this condition
Here are some...: I have never heard or read about long penis and large testes in the affected with Klinefelter's syndrome. And its diagnosis is based on clinical suspicion and confirmed with genetic chromosome study as xxy, which is not inherited and occurs in about 1 of 600 males. Large testes are in fact hydroceles in the eyes of laypersons. So, seek professional confirmation/ counseling. ...Read more
