The phenotype in male individuals with a mosaic sex chromosomal abnormality is heterogenous, but ambiguous genitalia, delayed puberty, disturbed spermatogenesis, and short stature are frequently seen. Genetic investigation in boys with idiopathic/isolated short stature usually includes SHOX gene analysis (sequencing and copy number detection by MLPA), genome wide array analysis, and/or whole exome sequencing (WES). In the Netherlands, conventional karyotyping is not part of th...
