  • Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome
    Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS) is a condition that results in the partial inability of the cell to respond to androgens.
  • Klinefelter syndrome
    Klinefelter syndrome (KS) also known as 47,XXY or XXY, is the set of symptoms that result from two or more X chromosomes in males.
  • Turner syndrome
    Turner syndrome (TS) also known as 45,X, is a condition in which a female is partly or completely missing an X chromosome.
  • Androgen insensitivity syndrome

  • XY gonadal dysgenesis
    Swyer syndrome, or XY gonadal dysgenesis, is a type of hypogonadism in a person whose karyotype is 46,XY.
  • 5-alpha-reductase deficiency

  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
    Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) are any of several autosomal recessive diseases resulting from mutations of genes for enzymes mediating the biochemical steps of production of mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids or sex steroids from cholesterol by the adrenal glands (steroidogenesis).
  • Third gender

  • XX male syndrome
    XX male syndrome (also called de la Chapelle syndrome, for Albert de la Chapelle, who characterized it in 1972) is a rare sex chromosomal disorder.
  • Disorders of sex development
    Disorders of sex development (DSD), sometimes referred to as disorders of sex differentiation or differences of sex development, are medical conditions involving the reproductive system.
