|Klinefelter Syndrome 47,XXY Sex Chromosome Aneuploidy XXY Syndrome||Other: No intervention|
Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the most common chromosomal abnormality in males and is associated with primary gonadal failure in adolescence and a high morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular-related diseases (CVD) in adulthood. Recent studies in children and adolescent boys with KS have found a high prevalence of CVD risk markers, however the underlying mechanisms have not been explored. Our central hypothesis is that pubertal boys with KS have relative testosterone deficiency resulting in abnormal energy metabolism that predisposes them to later CVD, and that exogenous testosterone will modify these abnormalities.
In this study, investigators will measure markers of cardiometabolic risk in pubertal boys with KS.
