The review article highlights many clinical aspects (1). However I missed aspects of cardiological disorders, especially in differential diagnostic distinctions from other neurological disorders. I had opportunity to observe a case of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in a young patient with KS, in whom attacks of tachycardia resulted in impaired consciousness. Apparently, a statistically increasingly frequent prevalence of WPW syndrome (and perhaps other heart arrhythmias) has been observed for Klinefelter syndrome.
