Recently, a remarkable progress has been made in our understanding about the role of sex steroids in male physiology. In this paper, we consider the clinical aspects of congenital estrogen deficiency - notably, estrogen resistance and aromatase deficiency - in men and we discuss both well-established and supposed estrogen roles in the human male reproductive function. These topics include the role of estrogens in the control of gonadotropin secretion, in male fertility determination and… Expand
