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.

Klinefelter's synd: Klinefelter's syndrome XXY is a syndrome seen in males with an extra X chromosome. This can result in delayed puberty, small firm testes and infertility, flaccid muscles, low testosterone hormone and enlarged breast size (gynecomastia). The cognitive and physical findings may vary/per/person.

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

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). Typical marfan syndrome is caused by a mutation in fbn1, coding for fibrillin-1.

If a man has big hips mean that he has klinefelter syndrome (xxy)?

If a man has big hips mean that he has klinefelter syndrome (xxy)?

No: Body build depends on a great many factors. If XXY tends to produce taller stature and wider hips, that proves nothing about any individual. I don't think anyone will ask Mr. Jackman (photo) whether he has Klinefelter's.

Extra chromosome: Klinefelter syndrome occurs when a male is born with an extra sex chromosome. Their pattern is XXY instead of the normal xy. The defect results in decline in testosterone production with age and a loss of fertility in adulthood.

Does anyone know about klinefelter syndrome?

Klinefelter: Klinefelter syndrome is a chromosomal abnormality in which a male has an extra x-chromosome in his cells. This usually leads to tall stature, wide hips, gynecomastiathis ie breast tissue, low testosterone, small penis size, small testicles, some learning issues.

I think I may have klinefelter syndrome. What should I do?

See your PCP: Your pcp can order the specific genetic blood test that can confirm or exclude the issue. If you are not and are concerned about specific issues, your pcp will know what local sources are available to sort them out.

Is there any change if a male that has klinefelter syndrome have kids?

Is there any change if a male that has klinefelter syndrome have kids?

Klinefelters: Most of the time these men have difficulty having children to do low sperm counts. Some klinefelter men are mosaics meaning only a percentage of their cells are abnormal with an extra x chromosome. These men may have an easier time. One should consult a geneticist before considering children as they are at high risk of having babies with sex-chromosome abnormalities.
