Abstract/OtherAbstract:
47,XXY Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the most common sex chromosome disorder affecting 1 in 660 newborn boys (1). Adolescent and adult patients with KS are characterised by hypergonadotropic hypogonadism, tall stature with eunuchoid body proportions, increased truncal fat and small testes, whereas no specific clinical or physical hallmarks have been identified at birth or during infancy and childhood (2;3). However, the adult phenotype varies greatly, and the symptoms of KS are not exclusive, and, possibly therefore, the syndrome is highly underdiagnosed. © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
