Supporting men with Klinefelter’s syndrome
The Guardian reported that Guy’s Hospital is running the first clinic in the UK to deal solely with Klinefelter’s syndrome.
The condition occurs when men are born with an extra X chromosome. It is a common condition that can cause male infertility but it often goes untreated.
Mr Tet Yap, consultant urologist, says: “Most men are only diagnosed when they struggle to conceive. This will be when they are in their 30s or older. And then they are often told they are totally infertile, which can be false information and devastating to receive.”
