Klinefelter syndrome (KS) frequently causes skeletal fragility characterized by profound alterations in bone microstructure with increased risk of fractures. Increased body fat mass associated with decreased body lean mass are frequent features of KS with possible detrimental effects on skeletal health. In this cross-sectional study, we evaluated the associations between body composition parameters, vertebral fractures (VFs) and trabecular bone score (TBS) in adult subjects with KS.

Abstract

Klinefelter syndrome (KS) frequently causes skeletal fragility characterized by profound alterations in bone microstructure with increased risk of fractures. Increased body fat mass associated with decreased body lean mass are frequent features of KS with possible detrimental effects on skeletal health. In this cross-sectional study, we evaluated the associations between body composition parameters, vertebral fractures (VFs) and trabecular bone score (TBS) in adult subjects with KS.
