Birth of a healthy boy using fresh testicular sperm in a patient with Klinefelter syndrome
combined with Kartagener syndrome.
and mediastinal germ cell tumors.
However, physical examination was not consistent with the features of Klinefelter syndrome
, and the cytogenetic evaluation of his peripheral blood showed a normal karyotype.
Sperm aneuploidy in fathers of children with paternally and maternally inherited Klinefelter syndrome
is a chromosomal malformation linked with extra X chromosome on male karyotype (47XXY).
Jude Medcalf, 23, who is 7ft 2in tall, went on a crime spree after being diagnosed with Klinefelter syndrome
, a rare disorder which means he is still growing.
is the most common sex chromosome disorder in males.
Aneuploidy of sex chromosomes can also occur: The presence of extra X chromosome(s) causes Klinefelter syndrome
in men and Triple X syndrome in women, while monosomy X gives rise to women with Turner syndrome.
Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain a familial disease that caused the bizarre appearance of the royalty, including Marfan syndrome, Wilson-Turner X-linked mental retardation syndrome, Frohlich syndrome (adiposogenital dystrophy), Klinefelter syndrome
, androgen insensitivity syndrome, (1) myotonic dystrophy, (2) and aromatase excess syndrome in conjunction with sagittal craniosynostosis syndrome, or Antley-Bixler syndrome.
He details the history of genetics; the Human Genome Project; genetic variation; DNA fingerprinting for paternity testing; DNA forensics history and legal matters; health issues like genetic discrimination, unlawful release of information, and HIPAA; rights, including genetic testing in sports and property rights in genetic material; how to talk to the jury about genetics; and anecdotes about topics like Klinefelter syndrome
Biopsy is not warranted for cases in which the cause of azoospermia can be elucidated on clinical grounds, such as Klinefelter syndrome
or prepubertal gonadotropin insufficiency.
FCMB also has plans to expand its product offering to other genetic abnormalities such as Edward's syndrome (Trisomy 18), Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) and Klinefelter syndrome
Furthermore, a number of inherited conditions, for example Down syndrome, Fanconi anemia, Bloom syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, dyskeratosis congenita, Werner syndrome, Shwachman syndrome, Blackfan-Diamond syndrome, and Klinefelter syndrome
, carry an increased risk of AML [5,6].
The risk of breast cancer is estimated to be 20 times higher in patients with Klinefelter syndrome
than in male patients without this condition.
