Kleinfelter syndrome is a genetic condition in which a male is born with an extra copy of the X chromosome, resulting in 3 copies of the sex chromosomes (XXY) instead of the typical 2 copies that are seen (XY). Kleinfelter syndrome is characterized by reduced muscle mass, increased breast tissue, small testicles, infertility and reduced body/facial hair. A relatively common condition affecting 1 in 500 to 1 in 1,000,[1] it often goes undiagnosed as the symptoms are mild and vary from person to person – not every man with Kleinfelter syndrome will present with the same features.

Diagnosis

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum
