Hypogonadism

07/08/2013 by admin | Endocrine
  1. Failure of ovaries or testes to produce sex steroids (oestrogen/testosterone) from either gonadal failure (-primary hypogonadism) or from hypothalamic-pituitary failure (=secondary hypogonadism).
  2. The key difference between primary and secondary is whether LH/FSH levels are high (=intact hypothalamic-pituitary axis) or low (=damaged axis). Low se steroids are seen in both scenarios.
