In brief: A genetic disorder

Both males and females have an X chromosome (girls have two, boys have one and one Y chromosome).
Fragile X is a genetic problem that causes a range of developmental issues, including learning disabilities. Males are more severely affected because they only have one copy of the X chromosome. They can have symptoms that resemble attention deficit disorder or learning issues.
