Androgen resistance (type 1) (medical condition)

A rare condition involving a deficiency of dihydrotestosterone receptor which impairs the function of androgen receptors and hence the androgen (male hormone) is partially or completely ineffective depending on the level of deficiency. The degree of feminization ranges from feminine phenotype through to male phenotype depending on the level of androgen insensitivity.
