prevalence of hypogonadism of approximately 20% in men over the age of 60 years, reaching 50% in men over 80 years ( 4 , 5 ). In older men, testosterone replacement increases lean body mass (LBM), reduces fat mass (FM) and improves physical function ( 2

Introduction Idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) is also known as congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. This rare clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder is characterized by complete or partial pubertal failure, which

Introduction Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) is characterised by partial or complete lack of pubertal development, secondary to deficient gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-induced gonadotropin secretion ( 1 ). Diagnosis is
