Children and adolescents with Klinefelter syndrome (XXY) have been reported to show deficits in language processing including VIQ < PIQ and a learning disability in reading and spelling. However, whether this is characteristic of adults with Klinefelter syndrome has not been established. Thirty-five men with Klinefelter syndrome, aged 16 to 61, and 22 controls were evaluated with a comprehensive neuropsychological battery. The Klinefelter patients scored significantly below controls in language… Expand
Speech and language in children with Klinefelter syndrome.
TLDR
Language, literacy and social-pragmatic deficits are common in males with Klinefelter syndrome, and data suggested a trend for more notable deficits with age and increasing academic and social demands. Expand
The cognitive phenotype in Klinefelter syndrome: a review of the literature including genetic and hormonal factors.
TLDR
The strengths and weaknesses of previous cognitive and neuropsychological studies in males with KS in childhood and adulthood are reviewed, historical perspective of these studies are provided, and what is known about how hormonal and genetic factors influence cognitive features in 47,XXY/KS is reviewed. Expand
Psychological functioning, brain morphology, and functional neuroimaging in Klinefelter syndrome
TLDR
Klinefelter syndrome is characterized by a specific cognitive profile with predominantly verbal deficits, preserved function in non‐verbal and visuo‐spatial domains, executive dysfunction and social impairments, and by an increased vulnerability toward psychiatric disorders. Expand
Executive skills in Klinefelter’s syndrome
TLDR
This study explored executive skills in children with Klinefelter's syndrome, a sex chromosome abnormality in which there is one or more additional X-chromosomes, and demonstrated that children with KS have impairments in executive skills. Expand

Context: Adults with Klinefelter’s syndrome (KS) are known to presentdisturbancesoflanguageskillsanddelayedlearningabilities. Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess brain morphometry in KSExpand
Neuropsychological functions, sleep, and mental health in adults with Klinefelter syndrome
TLDR
Investigation of neuropsychological functions with standard tests, sleep with actigraphy, and self‐reported mental health in men with Klinefelter syndrome indicates that relations between neuropsychology functions, sleep, and mental health differ between men with KS and controls. Expand

TLDR
The boys with XXY showed a distinct EF profile, with the greatest deficit in attention and more moderate deficits in working memory, switching, and planning/problem solving, as well as impaired inhibition. Expand
Cognitive mechanisms underlying disorganization of thought in a genetic syndrome (47,XXY)
TLDR
Findings indicate that executive impairments in the domains of inhibition and mental flexibility might play a role in the increased vulnerability for disorganized thought in the XXY group and speculate that the underlying mechanisms of thought disorder probably are deficit specific rather than disorder specific. Expand
Cortical gray matter structure in boys with Klinefelter syndrome
TLDR
Examination of brain structure in boys with KS added support for a neuroanatomical phenotype of KS and extended previous studies through clarifying the precise neuroan atomical structural characteristics of that give rise to volumetric alterations. Expand

The Psychoeducational Profile of Boys with Klinefelter Syndrome
TLDR
Boys with KS are shown to demonstrate a verbal cognitive deficit and significant underachievement in reading and spelling, as well as in arithmetic, and are most likely to have a generalized type of learning disability, with very few boys indicating a pure reading or pure arithmetic problem. Expand
Verbal deficits in Klinefelter (XXY) adults living in the community
TLDR
In spite of measurable verbal deficits, the XXY men did not appear to be underachievers and were, in general, as well educated, as likely to be employed, and of socioeconomic status equivalent to that of the other men in the study. Expand
Neuropsychological impairment in 42 adolescents with sex chromosome abnormalities.
TLDR
Test scores and patterns of personal adaptation were quite variable in all groups; while eight nonmosaic propositi required intensive special education assistance in their public schooling, eight others have attended college. Expand
Wechsler Verbal-Performance IQ discrepancies among psychiatric inpatients: implications for subtle neuropsychological dysfunctioning.
TLDR
The neuropsychiatric patients who had Verbal-Performance IQ discrepancies of at least one standard deviation may be at risk for specific, subtle neuropsychological deficits. Expand
A Comparison of Neuropsychological Test Profiles of Children with Attention Deficit—Hyperactivity Disorder and/or Learning Disorder
TLDR
All groups exhibited impaired performance in tasks of visual-motor precision and name retrieval, but the latter finding may involve two different mechanisms, one related to linguistic impairment and possibly contributing to reading and spelling problems, and the other related to attentional problems.

TLDR
Thirty-eight patients with Turner's syndrome and 23 with Klinefelter's syndrome have been studied, and it is suggested that a degree of space-form dysgnosia and adegree of dyscalculia may be characteristic symptoms of Turner's Syndrome. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the most verbally impaired children were those with the greatest delays in physical growth, as indicated by bone age and dermatoglyphic measures. Expand

In a study of nine Klinefelter syndrome patients obtained from a military population, all were found to have normal electroencephalograms (EEGs), all were clinically euthyroid, and had normal thyroidExpand
Dyslexia in 47,XXXY boys identified at birth
TLDR
Cognitive skills in 14 unselected 47,XXY boys and 14 euploid control boys matched for age and socioeconomic status were examined, finding no significant differences on measures of intelligence, perception, and language, although mean score trends suggested mildly diminished skills. Expand
Oral and written language abilities of XXY boys: implications for anticipatory guidance.
TLDR
The results suggest that difficulty learning how to read and spell may be due to a preexistent language disability and early attention to such expressive language problems may be essential to ameliorate secondary maladaptive behaviors due to chronic language-related learning disabilities. Expand
