My nephew is diagnosed to have 47, XXX chromosome. His mother said that it causes children has a slow verbal development, small 'bird', later when he grow older, he'll be sterile, and many others. So far the doctor said not much research result on it, so if anyone can help me to help my nephew, please let me know. This kid is 2 yrs old already and it's very hard to get his attention. He doesn't care or look at you when we called his name. I need advise of what to do or where to go to get the right treatment for this kid. Thanks very much in advance.

How sad ifeel sorry for the parents. This occurs due to immature development ior due to the differential or defects in cromosomai arrangements or by their inequal divisions,it occurs both in males and females and in males it is diagnoised as Klinfelters syndrome may be,i rememeber it such and moreover they resembles as 1/2 females as they grow their will be change in the tone but they develop chest as females and they will sterile and 1/2 they behave as females but they will be normal with their brains.

Iam sorry i was mistaken it is DOWN'S syndrome and children of this have poor development of brain their features will somewhat different and they have little eyes with large head size and their thumb finger will be somewhat swelled and is different with the other fingers till now there is no treatment found and they die at their young age also due to less development of some of the glands in their body and they even doesnot have the proper speech.

ok I'm confused.... it's a boy with XXX??? boys have an XY as females have XX. I have heard of XXX (trimsomy X) but it is in Females???? Here's some information for you anyway..... Trisomy X is often not diagnosed until later in life, if ever. Many girls and women with Triple X have no signs or symptoms. Signs and symptoms can vary a lot between individuals, but can include: Physical: Tall stature (height) Possible mild facial characteristics: increased width between eyes, skin fold at inner eyelid (epicanthal fold), proportionately smaller head size Developmental: Learning disabilities (70%): Normal IQ, but may be 10-15 points below siblings Speech and language delays (50%) Delayed motor skills: poor coordination, awkwardness, clumsines Behavioral: introverted, difficulty with interpersonal relationships

Thanks very much for your information. It's a boy with XXX. I can see that some of your information fits my nephews'. Like poor coordination in a way, when he walks he used to hit the edge of the dining table or the edge of the walls and still doing the same thing as if he didn't know it. Speech delays: YES. Awkwardness: YES. His mother is no more into having another baby. She said it's because living cost these days is not easy. Frankly I think it's because she had enough with the current one. She really stressed out because of her son. Plus she's a short tempered person, so she often scream or hit her son. I told him sometimes that those won't help her son but she's just too stress out to not to do it. Thanks once again.
