Figure 1.  The prevalence of postnatal diagnosis of Klinefelter syndrome in Denmark in the year 2000

The maximum prevalence for any single age-group is around 40 cases per 100,000 males, which is approximately 25% of the expected prevalence (152 cases per 100,000 males). This discrepancy demonstrates the extent to which this condition is underdiagnosed. Only 10% of the expected number of patients are diagnosed before 14 years of age.
