Gonadectomy fails to affect BMD in complete androgen insensitivity syndrome

May 19, 2017

Gerard S. Conway, MD, FRCP, of the department of endocrinology at University College Hospital and professor in the Institute for Women’s Health at University College London Hospitals, and colleagues evaluated 113 women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome to determine the relationship between age of gonadectomy and BMD.
