World’s first Klinefelter syndrome clinic

The world’s first clinic for men with Klinefelter syndrome has launched at Guy’s Hospital.

 

The condition occurs when men are born with an extra X chromosome. It can cause male infertility and increases risk of Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers.

 

Mr Tet Yap, consultant urologist, says: “The new service will mean that patients will have access to a multidisciplinary team of experts.”
