Were you looking for information about Klinefelter Syndrome? Klinifelter syndrome is a common misspelling of Klinefelter syndrome.
Klinefelter syndrome, a condition that only affects men, results when there is an extra X chromosome in the male's cells. This extra chromosome interferes with sexual development, causing low testosterone levels. Other signs of Klinefelter syndrome can include breast development, small testes, and sparse facial and body hair. Although this is a chromosomal problem and there is no known cure, possible treatment options may include testosterone medications and surgery.
