    XYY Karotype

    I was diagnosed at birth with it.. and I know ltitle about it.. all I know is I was also diagnosed with PDD and borderline aspergers. . Any help or refrences would be awesome..
    i do not want to go off what my parents told me growing up where most people with it die at 30 (because everyone they researched was a convict )

    Re: XYY Karotype

    There is not a great deal of research done on the XYY karotype, although it is becoming increasingly more common, about 1 in 1,000 male births (as medicine improves, it is easier and less expensive to diagnose). Often people with XYY karotype have autism or aspergers (around 50%). Intelligence level is normal. Immune system functioning appears to be normal. Fertility is reduced.

    Conclusion, you don't need to worry about dying young.
