    Basic Facts of Disease
    Polydactyly of the toes, especially of the little toe, is a common malformation, occurring in approximately two in 1,000 births. Thirty percent of all children with polydactyly have family members with some type of polydactyly, and it is more common in African Americans.

    ...
    Not all males with the condition have the same symptoms or to the same degree. Symptoms depend on how many XXY cells a man has, how much testosterone is in his body, and his age when the condition is diagnosed. The XXY condition can affect two main areas of development.
    1) Physical 2) Social 3) Language
    Physical Development
    As babies males have weak muscles and reduced strength. They may sit up, crawl, and walk later than other infants. After around age four males tend to be taller and may have less muscle control and coordination than other boys their age.
    During teenage years they often don't make as much testosterone as other boys. This can lead to a taller, less muscular body, less facial and body hair, and broader hips than other boys. As teens they may have larger breasts, weaker bones, and a lower energy level than other boys.
    ...
    Males can have normal sex lives, but they usually make little or no sperm. Between 95 percent and 99 percent of XXY males are infertile because their bodies don't make a lot of sperm.
    Typically those with Klinefelter syndrome have abnormal body proportions, are unusually tall, have only a small amount of body hair, enlarged breasts, and sexual difficulties.
    Social Development
    As babies, XXY males tend to be quiet and undemanding. As they get older, they are usually quieter, less self-confident, less active, and more helpful and obedient than others.
    As teens, males with Klinefelter syndrome tend to be quiet and shy. They may struggle in school and sports, because they have more trouble "fitting in".
    However, as adults, XXY males live lives similar to men without the condition; they have friends, families, and normal social relationships.
    Language Development
    Those with Klinefelter's also have learning disabilities, difficulty with speech, and language development.
    They tend to be quiet, sensitive, and unassertive, but as with all individuals the range varies.

    Nature of the Genetic Difficulty
    The defect is on the gene on chromosome 21q22.3 causing microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion.
