Klinefelter's Syndrome

Klinefelter’s syndrome is a condition in which men have an extra X chromosome in most of their cells – an XXY pattern instead of the normal XY pattern that most men have. Boys with the XXY-condition tend to have language problems and lesser muscle tone than other boys, and they tend to have trouble fitting in. But as adults, most of them lead normal, successful lives.

dna testing options


I'm a new member and my eldest son (age 15) has been diagnosed with this syndrome. I would like to verify with a DNA test, but we don't have insurance and can't afford the $2,000 for the test. Are there any other options (ie. overseas?) for getting the testing done? Thanks so much!

I think that maybe there are doctors in India who could help you. Maybe you can look into hospitals in Chennai, which have some of the best doctors.
