Androgen insensitivity syndrome in a cohort of Sri Lankan children with 46, XY disorders of sex development (46, XY DSD).
The 46, XY DSD can be categorized as disorders of testis development (e.g., complete or partial gonadal dysgenesis), disorders of androgen synthesis [e.g., 3[beta]-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 2, 17[alpha]-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase, 17[beta]-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, or 5[alpha]-reductase type 2 deficiency (5ARD)], disorders of androgen action (e.g., androgen insensitivity syndrome due to mutations in the androgen receptor gene), and other conditions affecting sex development.
Conclusion: Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) in its various forms is the commonest of all XY DSD.

The most common diagnoses are congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), androgen insensitivity syndrome, and mixed gonadal dysgenesis, which account for 32% to 47% of children with DSD (Hewitt & Warne, 2009).
The incidence of androgen insensitivity syndrome is estimated to be 1:20, 000-64, 000 male births and with variable phenotype expression, this syndrome can present as complete or partial forms.
