Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two 48,XXYY males, a young and an adult patient, have been clinically and molecularly analysed. Clinical findings seem less severe in the young patient. This clinical difference could be mainly due to the age of the younger patient or, alternatively, the different pattern of X-inactivation observed in the two patients could play a role in the degree of the clinical manifestations.
