X-Linked Mental Deficiency Megalotestes Syndrome

JAMA. 1977;238(15):1646-1650. doi:10.1001/jama.1977.03280160040025

Members of two kindreds had mental deficiency and megalotestes. The familial occurrence suggests an X-linked recessive trait or autosomal-dominant trait with male sex limitation. The increased testicular size was apparently due to excess fluid content.
