Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS; OMIM 300068) is the most frequent known monogenic cause of 46,XY disorders of sex development (DSD) and is an X-linked recessive condition.
In 46, XY DSD with atypical genitalia, the most common cause was found to be partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS)/5[alpha]-reductase deficiency (62%, n=81).
Genetic abnormalities, such as mutations and polymorphism, were repeatedly detected in androgen insensitivity and other prostatic disorders specially PCa.
At this stage, the provisional diagnosis of complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) was made and the endocrinologists opted to monitor the patient.
Results: Out of 151 patients of XY DSD, 68 (45%) patients were diagnosed as partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PIAS), 18 (12%) as isolated micropenis, 25 (16.6%) as partial gonadal dysgenesis, 12 (7.9%) as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, 11 (7.2%) as primary hypogonadism, 13 (8.6%) as complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) and 4 (2.6%) as 5[alpha] reductase deficiency.
An interesting case study reported that a woman carrying a heterozygous AR gene mutation gave birth to a baby with androgen insensitivity syndrome suggesting plausible repercussions on reproductive outcomes associated with AR gene mutations [103] and not only with repeat lengths.

(14) Increased signs and symptoms of dry eye and MGD have been found in patients on antiandrogens (such as in prostate or breast cancer treatment) and in women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS).
Is complete androgen insensitivity syndrome associated with alterations in the meibomian gland and ocular surface?
