Congenital estrogen deficiency in men: a new syndrome with different phenotypes; clinical and therapeutic implications in men.

[aromatase deficiency]

The report focuses on the role of estrogens in human male, dealing with two human models of congenital estrogen deficiency: estrogen resistance and aromatase deficiency. Similarities and differences of clinical phenotypes of these models are described and progresses of estrogen treatment of aromatase-deficient men are reported. Finally, the putative use of estrogen in men and the use of aromatase inhibitors and antiestrogen for male disorders are discussed.
