    AIS manifests in an array of phenotypes from mild to partial or complete androgen insensitivity [].Complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) is characterized by female external genitalia, usually with small labial folds, a short blind ending vagina (3–10 cm), absence of Wolffian duct derived structures and prostate, absent/rudimentary uterus, gynecomastia, scanty/absent . Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is a disorder of male sexual differentiation caused by a defective, deficient, or absent androgen receptor. The syndrome was first described by Morris in who coined the term testicular feminization syndrome, based on the observation of the complete absence of signs of virilization in phenotypic females.

    Androgen is the hormone that starts this process but I was born with out an androgen receptor. It's caused by a genetic mutation passed down from my mothers side or the x chromosome. Since by body could not interpret what androgen was and also testosterone, my x chromosome turned it into estrogen. So my outward genitalia began to develop as female.   A year-old lady with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS, 46,XY) presented with the desire to breastfeed her first child during the pregnancy of a surrogate mother.

Androgen insensitivity syndrome is a condition that affects sexual development before birth and during puberty. People with this condition are genetically male, with one X chromosome and one Y chromosome in each cell.

Because their bodies are unable to respond to certain male sex hormones (called androgens), they may have mostly female external sex. Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is typically characterized by evidence of feminization (i.e., undermasculinization) of the external genitalia at birth, abnormal secondary sexual development in puberty, and infertility in individuals with a 46,XY karyotype.

AIS represents a spectrum of defects in androgen action and can be subdivided into three broad phenotypes:Cited by: Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is a common etiology of sexual developmental disorders resulting in varying phenotypes.

These disorders of androgen action present as 46 XY disorders or differences of sex development (DSD). The phenotypic spectrum of AIS depends on the residual androgen receptor activity and encompasses individuals with completely female Author: Shikha Singh, Stella Ilyayeva.

Many thousands of women around the world suffer from a disorder known as Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS), or in old text books as Testicular Feminisation syndrome is of great interest because it conclusively proves (though perhaps still not to some judges and lawyers) that women can have XY genes, a fact which has considerable.

).Affected children will present with an inguinal hernia prepubertally or because of primary. Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is when a person who is genetically male (who has one X and one Y chromosome) is resistant to male hormones (called androgens).

As a result, the person has some or all of the physical traits of a woman, but the genetic makeup of a man. Androgen insensitivity syndrome book is caused by genetic defects on the X chromosome.

Sequence analysis is performed for the entire coding region of the androgen receptor (AR) gene associated with complete, partial and mild androgen insensitivity syndromes.

Specimen requirements In most cases, a single tube of 4 cc whole blood collected in EDTA [lavender top] tubes is sufficient. Androgen insensitivity syndrome in its complete form is a disorder of hormone resistance characterised by a female phenotype in an individual with an XY karyotype and testes producing age-appropriate normal concentrations of androgens.

5 Because the patients were women and girls with bilateral testes that seemed to produce oestrogen-like hormones, Morris coined the term testicular feminisation syndrome. This contradictory label was renamed as complete androgen insensitivity Cited by: The androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) leads among men (46, XY) to infertility and to a varying degree of male or female phenotype.
