    The BTK gene defect has been mapped to the long arm of the X chromosome at band Xq21.3 to Xq22, spanning 37.5kb with 19 exons forming 659 amino acids to complete the BTK cytosolic[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    The phenotype varies, but the typical male suffering from the syndrome is characterized by eunuchoid body proportions, abnormally long legs and arm span, feminine distribution[doi.org] , arm span greater than height, sparse or absent facial hair, decreased muscle mass and feminine fatty distribution including breast development (Smyth and Bremner 1998, p[oii.org.au] Publications mention either no difference in arm span to body height or relatively long or relatively short arms ( 2 , 3 , 34 , 35 ).[dx.doi.org]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    There are long arms and legs, and the arm span is greater than the height. Hair is sparse on the body but there is usually a full head of fine and abundant hair.[drkaslow.com] The typical person is also tall with an angular appearance but a shorter person may have what we call “signs of tallness” – a moderately long neck, an index finger longer[drkaslow.com]
