Triple X

What is Triple X syndrome?

Triple X syndrome is a genetic condition only present in females and is characterised as an additional X chromosome in each cell. It is believed that around 1 in every 1000 females born in the UK will be affected. What are the characteristics of Triple X syndrome? People afflicted with Triple X syndrome generally show no marked physical difference and the characteristics of the condition are often mild. Consequently, the condition often goes undiagnosed. However, some characteristics that may be present include:

  • Being taller than average
  • Having a small head
  • Vertical skin folds covering the corner of the eye
  • Speech and language learning disabilities

What are the treatment options for Triple X syndrome?

Since the condition is rarely diagnosed and the symptoms shown in an individual are often mild, there is no standard therapy for treating Triple X syndrome.
