Fragile X is due to mutation of the X gene that primarily affects males (1:2,000 males; 1:4,000 females), which results in an autism-type picture of different degrees due to mental retardation. Decreased intelligence, language difficulties and poor social ability can often be misdiagnosed for conditions other than fragile X, which can be confirmed with a blood test.
