Klinefelter syndrome (medical condition): A genetic condition where males have at least one extra X chromosome or extra copies of both the X and Y chromosomes in each cell. Normally male cells contain one X and one Y chromosome in each cell. The condition is not inherited but is a result of problems during cell division. Klinefelter syndrome variants is a more severe form of the condition as it involves more than one extra X or X and Y chromosome in each cell.

Klinefelter syndrome (medical condition): A rare chromosomal genetic syndrome where the person has XXY chromosomes instead of XY or XX. The person is usually male because of the Y chromosome, but has lower levels of testosterone and may have some female-like features (because there are two X chromosomes). Sterility is a possible complication. The rarer subtype XXXY syndrome may lead to retardation.
