Detailed Description:

Kallmann syndrome is comprised of idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia (inability to smell). Associated phenotypes may include cryptorchidism, microphallus, bone deformations, mirror movements, hearing loss and infertility. Objective is to characterize epidemiology, clinical and genetic features of Kallmann syndrome in Finland.
