Neuroendocrine and Sex Chromosome Variation Clinic

The Neuroendocrine and Sex Chromosome Variation Clinic provides consultation and services across a range of syndromic disorders that commonly include cognitive-behavioral and psychiatric symptoms as part of their overall phenotype. This particular focus of the clinic is to treat conditions related to the action of hormones on the brain and/or differences in sex chromosome number. We provide specialized care for these often complex conditions that require interdisciplinary care across a number of medical domains, and we participate in advisory capacities for several national organizations related to these conditions.
