Males with Klinefelter syndrome can be given testosterone, a hormone needed for sexual development. If treatment is started around the age of puberty, it can help boys with the sexual development of their bodies.
Testosterone is given by injection or through a skin patch or gel. The treatment usually continues throughout a man's life but does not help infertility.
Speech therapy and educational support can help boys who have language or learning problems.
