Question: If this is X-linked (to me that means it is on the X chromosome), the how can it be EXCLUSIVELY MALE? Women are carriers, and a male with the disorder both have the "defective" X chromosome. Thus women may also have the disorder although most likely at a lower frequency. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.244.214.59 (talk) 14:35, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
