Abstract

Introduction: Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the most common sex chromosomal anomaly with hypogonadism being a common feature in this syndrome. The ejaculate volume is about normal to low in men with this syndrome. In the present report, we describe the successful treatment of a lifelong anejaculation in a man with KS. This represents the first report of successful treatment of anejaculation in KS. Case presentation: A 24-year-old Caucasian man presented with a lifelong history of failure of ejaculation. A diagnostic work-up revealed the existence of KS and administration of human chorionic gonadotrophin restored the ejaculation. Conclusion: This case report confirms further the increased prevalence of ejaculatory disorders among men with KS in whom associated hypogonadism should be considered a cause of anejaculation. Diagnosis of KS is often delayed. Early diagnosis of the syndrome before puberty is highly recommended and desirable to maintain quality of life.
