    Sex differences are well known to be determinants of development, health and disease. Epigenetic mechanisms are also known to differ between men and women through X-inactivation in females. We hypothesized that epigenetic sex differences may also result from sex hormone functions, in particular...

    The Androgen insensitivity (testicular feminization) syndrome is an X-linked recessive disorder where affected males despite having 46, XY karyotype, have some features of a female. 46, XY karyotype leads to the differentiation of testes 'in utero', but a defect in the gene coding for the...

    Gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast caused by the proliferation of glandular breast tissue. Determining the various causes of gynecomastia such as physiological causes, drugs, systemic diseases, and endocrine disorders is important. Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is a...
