Klinefelter syndrome

Klinefelter Syndrome, also known as 47,XXY, is a common, but under-diagnosed, genetic condition. It’s congenital, which means you’re born with it. It is the most common cause of hypogonadism which stops your body from producing sperm and testosterone (male sex hormone). Small testicles after puberty are a strong indication and there are other symptoms which sometimes occur. Treatment is lifelong testosterone therapy.
