Brief Summary:
Objective is to characterize epidemiology, clinical and genetic features of Kallmann syndrome in Finland.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Kallmann Syndrome Drug: Short withdrawal of testosterone, gonadotropins or estrogenic compounds (see below) Not Applicable

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.
