[The significance of estrogens on metabolism of bone in men].

[aromatase deficiency]

Authors present actual data on estradiol, its production and systemic functions, with special stress on relations between the hormone (and estrogen-like substances) and male bone metabolism. Based on literature studies and cases of men with impaired hormone metabolism (estrogen resistency and aromatase deficiency), attention is paid to the role of estrogens in the patophysiology of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
