Is xxxy syndrome barr-shaver-carr syndrome?
XXXY Syndrome and Barr-Shaver-Carr Syndrome are the same.
XXXY (referred to as 48XXXY) is a VERY RARE form of Klinefelter's syndrome, the more common type being XXY (47XXY). Males should have 46XY, but in this condition males develop with an extra (or in the case of this question, 2 extra) X chromosome. This is the most common sex chromosome disorder, affecting approximately 1/1000 males. The effects are usually small testis, reduced fertility and potential learning impairments.
Klinefelter syndrome: males inherit one or more extra X chromosomes--their genotype is XXY or more rarely XXXY or XY/XXY mosaic. In severe cases, they have relatively high-pitched voices, asexual to feminine body contours as well as breast enlargement, and comparatively little facial and body hair. They are sterile or nearly so, and their testes and prostate gland are small.

However, Asperger's Syndrome is diagnosed based on a number of symptoms…
