Abstract

Chromosome studies on 129 tall men surveyed in four different institutions for the care of criminal males in Pennsylvania showed that 1 in 11 subjects displayed aneuploidy of the sex chromosomes; specifically, five cases of 47,XYY and seven cases of Klinefelter syndrome were identified. All the aneuploid subjects were mentally ill; none had been cytogenetically diagnosed.
