Klinefelter syndrome is the most common disorder of the male sex chromosomes, yet is rarely diagnosed in children. According to lead author Sharron Close, PhD, boys with Klinefelter syndrome are an under-studied and vulnerable population owing to late diagnosis, stigma, and misunderstanding about the nature of sex chromosome disorders. Although Klinefelter syndrome affects approximately one in 600 males, only 10% of cases are diagnosed during childhood. Study participants underwent physical exams and hormone analysis, and completed four questionnaires that assessed their quality of life, self-esteem, self-concept, and risk for depression.
Boys with a higher number of the physical traits associated with Klinefelter syndrome reported worse quality of life than those with fewer physical manifestations of the disorder. Surprisingly, testosterone levels were not associated with these psychological and social health measures, even though low testosterone has been widely believed to underlie many of these symptoms.
Whether hormonal therapy plays a role during development or not, the researchers emphasize that early intervention to address psychosocial health risks will help patients and their families manage some of the chronic aspects of Klinefelter syndrome. Klinefelter syndrome is caused by an extra X chromosome and is one of the most common genetic causes of male infertility. This work was supported by grants from the Pediatric Endocrine Nursing Society, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, Alpha Zeta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, Yale School of Nursing National Institutes of Health (5T32NR008346-08), and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health (UL1 TR000040).

A new assessment tool is being developed by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) to help pediatricians detect the physical traits of the syndrome. Arlene Smaldone, PhD, associate professor at the Columbia School of Nursing, Nancy Reame, PhD, the Mary Dickey Lindsay Professor of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in the Faculty of Nursing at CUMC, and Ilene Fennoy, MD, professor of Pediatrics at CUMC. The KSPHI, which is still under development, will make it easier for pediatricians to diagnose the syndrome. The KSPHI was used to detect the cumulative number of common physical traits in 43 males between the ages of 8 and 18 years. About two-thirds of the participants with Klinefelter syndrome indicated they had a poor quality of life, while 38% had low self-esteem, 26% had a poor self-concept, and 16% were at risk for depression.
The medical center trains future leaders and includes the dedicated work of many physicians, scientists, public health professionals, dentists, and nurses at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Mailman School of Public Health, the College of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, the biomedical departments of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and allied research centers and institutions.

The KSPHI measures 13 physical traits, including tall stature, wide arm span, large waist circumference, small testes, breast tissue development, and skeletal abnormalities. A subset of participants was drawn from CUMC’s adolescent endocrinology clinic, which is a leading diagnostic center for Klinefelter Syndrome. Most participants reported learning disabilities, speech and language deficits, and social problems. Although infertility is the most frequent outcome of the disorder, affected individuals are also at high risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
