Diagnosis of Klinefelter syndrome

When Klinefelter syndrome is a potential cause of male infertility, three simple tests can be carried out to provide an accurate diagnosis of this condition.

Firstly, a karyotype test can give us information about the number of chromosomes present in the cells. A hormonal analysis can inform us about the existence of a testosterone deficit due to hyperandrogenism. Finally, a semen analysis can help determine if the patient has azoospermia or could have children with a fertility treatment.
