As its name indicates, a person with the syndrome has one
Y chromosomeand four X chromosomeson the 23rd pair, thus having 49 chromosomes rather than the normal 46. As is common with aneuploidydisorders, 49 XXXXY syndrome is often accompanied by mental retardation. It can be considered a form of Klinefelter syndrome, cite book |author=Cotran, Ramzi S.; Kumar, Vinay; Fausto, Nelson; Nelso Fausto; Robbins, Stanley L.; Abbas, Abul K. |title=Robbins and Cotran pathologic basis of disease |publisher=Elsevier Saunders |location=St. Louis, Mo |year=2005 |pages=179 |isbn=0-7216-0187-1 |oclc= |doi= |accessdate=] or a variant of it.
It is genetic, but not hereditary. This means that while the genes of the parents cause the syndrome, there is a small chance of more than one child having the syndrome. The probability of inheriting the disease is about 1%. [http://www.webspawner.com/users/49xxxxysyndrome/ Webspawner.com article on 49 XXXXY syndrome] . Retrieved

The individuals with this syndrome are males, but a female version also exists with similar characteristics as the male version.
The mental effects of 49 XXXXY Syndrome vary, much like
Down syndrome. Males with the syndrome tend to have impaired speech and behavioral problems.cite journal |author=Visootsak J, Rosner B, Dykens E, Tartaglia N, Graham JM |title=Behavioral phenotype of sex chromosome aneuploidies: 48,XXYY, 48,XXXY, and 49,XXXXY |journal=Am.

Skeletal anomalies include:
The effects on the males also include:
*short or/and broad neck
*low birth weight
