There is no cure for 49,XXXXY syndrome. Treatment depends on the symptoms present in each person and is often managed by a team of various specialists. Specialists involved in the care of an affected person may include heart doctors (cardiologists), orthopedists, physiotherapists, speech therapists, eye doctors (ophthalmologists), neurologists, and endocrinologists. While life expectancy is thought to be normal in the absence of major complications, affected people will need regular medical visits.
