Living With Klinefelter Syndrome

Klinefelter syndrome is a chromosomal condition that affects the sexual development of males. Females are not affected by it. While the condition is genetic, this is due to a random mutation in a gene -- the disease is not inherited.
 
For those men living with Klinefelter syndrome, treatment typically involves regular screenings to check for complications, testosterone treatment, and even surgery in some cases. The prognosis with this condition is quite good. Most men dealing with it lead full, active lives and have a normal lifespan.
