Known NZ XXY'ers

Recently diagnosed? Let us know – we have groups of XXY’ers and parents who meet up online to chat and support each other. We also arrange in-person meetings and events from time to time.

Note that we only know of 86, more men may ‘know’ they are XXY.

Association for X and Y Chromosome Variations

An amazing group that has a wealth of information for XXY’ers as well as people with other chromosome variations.

Australian X and Y Spectrum Support

Great resource with many suitable links. 

Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group

The ‘Hormones and Me – Klinefelter Syndrome’ downloadable booklet provided by APEG is very useful. Thank you.

Klinefelter’s Syndrome Association

The KSA has been supporting people diagnosed with KS and XXY for over 25 years. Well done.

Articles, documents and other information

Klinefelter syndrome is one of the most common chromosome conditions in newborns. It affects between 1 in 500 and 1 in 1,000 newborn males.

Technically, being XXY is not a rare condition however it is rarely discovered.

We are happy to champion Rare Disorders NZ as they are working towards supporting all those with rare disorders.
