To date, there are no case reports on combined Job’s Syndrome (JS) and Klinefelter syndrome (KS). We describe the case of a 36-year-old man with KS and hyper-IgE Syndrome, detected at genetic tests. The patient, with testicular volume reduction, ginecomastia and hepatic steatosis underwent hormone replacement therapy with testosterone enanthate to increase testosterone blood levels, despite the side effects of the treatment and antibiotic prophylaxis against lung infections. This is the first case report of combined JS and KS diagnosed in young man, and it indicates the need to consider the concurrent existence of these two disorders in patients with recurrent lung infections, subcutaneous abscesses and IgE increase.


KEY WORDS: Klinefelter Syndrome - Job Syndrome - Gynecomastia - Hypogonadism - Testosterone
