Klinefelter Syndrome - Diagnosis

How is KS diagnosed?

The diagnosis of KS is made by looking at the complete set of chromosomes of the individual. This is called a karyotype. A karyotype shows the number and visual appearance of the chromosomes found in the cells of a person.

  • Before birth
    Diagnosis of KS can be made by taking a sample of amniotic fluid, or other foetal tissue, to look at the foetal karyotype.
  • After birth
    Diagnosis of KS is confirmed by taking a sample of blood or other tissue to obtain a karyotype.
