Abstract: The XYY chromosome abnormality is a frequently encountered numerical
chromosome abnormality characterized by behavioral problems, developmental
retardation and average or lower than average intelligence. A strong
association with epilepsy has not been reported for the XYY anomaly unlike
other chromosomal abnormalities where concurrence with seizures or epilepsy has
been reported in a few studies. In this manuscript, we describe a patient with
XYY karyotype, mild mental retardation and epilepsy.
