Project Description

Klinefelters Syndrome Association

Klinefelter’s Syndrome isn’t rare – but it is rarely diagnosed. Although KS/XXY affects about 1:600 live ‘male’ births, only 25% are diagnosed and the intersex nature of XXY is rarely considered.

Common symptoms in children are language and speech disorders, undescended testicle(s). Adults have small firm testes, often gynaecomastia and are infertile. However, as sperm may be viable during late teens, some may be able to father a child. Early diagnosis and support can make a huge difference to quality of life.

Free membership is offered to all interested health professionals – please visit the KSA at stand E43 or contact chair@ksa-uk.net.
