Abstract

Forty-seven XXY aneuploidy is the most common disorder of sex chromosomes with a prevalence of 1:500 males. However only 1/3 cases are diagnosed due to phenotypic variability and insufficient professional awareness of the syndrome. School children with Klinefelter syndrome (KS) present with language delay, learning disabilities and behavioral / social problems. We present a case of Klinefelter syndrome (KS) with language based learning disabilities.
