It seems like the X answer should be "XYY Syndrome." I agree that XYY should be accepted, but as written, the clue is asking for the condition, not the chromosome makeup.

I though theories surrounding this syndrome were debunked? Fragile X or some other might be a better question.

For N, I thought it was Non-24 Sleep/Wake Disorder at first, which I have, but rarely see mentioned anywhere so I was surprised. Narcolepsy I thought was the tendency to fall asleep suddenly and without warning. My aunt was narcoleptic for a while and would fall asleep on the toilet or sometimes in the middle of a sentence.

Just tried a Japanese name for "K". GOAL! This is even better than getting credit for the "UK" when I start to type "Ukraine".

Couldn't quite come up with Kawasaki. Knew it ended in 'saki'. Kept trying variants of Kirisaki :-/
