POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED
WITH KLINEFELTER SYNDROME OR XXY
AND EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION


The reason for this section is to create listings of all of the possible symptoms associated with Klinefelter Syndrome, which is considered to be a spectrum disorder.  Klinefelter Syndrome or XXY is a condition that occurs in 1 in 500 live male births and has many possible symptoms, although everyone with this condition is an individual and unique and does not usually have the same symptoms or to the same degree.  By providing the below lists, these symptoms potentially will either assist your doctor in diagnosing either your son or yourself with this condition, or potentially can assist you in further identifying with this genetic condition.

The educational list and additional information may be of assistance to you and your son's educators to assess and determine appropriate ways to help in teaching him.  Again, Klinefelter Syndrome is a spectrum disorder and these symptoms may or may not occur with your child.

If you should run across any symptoms that you feel should be on one the lists, but is not currently listed, please inform me via email.  I realize that you may feel that a number, if not all, of the symptoms can be a part of a variety of other conditions.  This is why diagnosing Klinefelter Syndrome is so difficult and why a number of males are not diagnosed for many years, if at all.  This information is designed to assist in the diagnosis of the condition.
