Polymorphisms in Genes Involved in Testosterone Metabolism in Slovak Autistic Boys
TLDR
Evaluating androgen and estrogen levels in saliva as well as polymorphisms in genes for androgen receptor (AR), 5-alpha reductase (SRD5A2), and estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1) in the Slovak population of prepubertal and pubertal children with autism spectrum disorders finds the modulating influence of studying genotypes on the effect of testosterone could provide insight into the pathogenesis of Autism spectrum disorders.
Polycystic ovary syndrome and autism: A test of the prenatal sex steroid theory
TLDR
Three matched case-control studies conducted in the UK between 1990 and 2014 provide further evidence that women with PCOS and their children have a greater risk of autism.
A Role for Fetal Testosterone in Human Sex Differences
TLDR
This chapter examines the effect of hormones on the development of sex differences related to ASCs and the reasons why this condition in particular has been viewed in this light and the evidence related to it.
A prospective assessment of androgen levels in patients with autistic spectrum disorders: biochemical underpinnings and suggested therapies.
Impairments in social relatedness and communication, repetitive behaviors, abnormal movement patterns, and sensory dysfunction characterize autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Seventy consecutive
Genes related to sex steroids, neural growth, and social–emotional behavior are associated with autistic traits, empathy, and Asperger syndrome
TLDR
A study of common genetic variation in candidate genes associated with autistic traits and Asperger syndrome (AS), and the first candidate‐gene association study of AS and of autistic traits.
Mothers of Autistic Children: Lower Plasma Levels of Oxytocin and Arg-Vasopressin and a Higher Level of Testosterone
TLDR
It is suggested that dysregulation of OXT, AVP and/or testosterone systems exist in mothers of autistic children, which may impact children’s susceptibility to autism.
Hyperandrogenemia in male autistic children and adolescents: relation to disease severity
TLDR
Hyperandrogenemia is prevalent in autistic patients and increases with autistic severity, Thus, androgen levels should be assessed in Autistic patients with signs of early puberty.

The 2nd to 4th digit ratio and autism.
TLDR
2D:4D ratio may be a possible marker for autism which could implicate prenatal testosterone in its aetiology and positive associations of children with autism and the ratios of their relatives were found.
Using self-report to identify the broad phenotype in parents of children with autistic spectrum disorders: a study using the Autism-Spectrum Quotient.
TLDR
The Autism Spectrum Quotient appears to be sensitive to the broad phenotype, provided attention is restricted to the social skills and communication scales.
Psychosexual Development of Women with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
TLDR
Compared to the controls, the women with CAH recalled more cross-gender role behavior and less comfort with their sense of "femininity" during childhood, and the two groups did not differ in degree of gender dysphoria in adulthood, although the probands showed moreCross- gender role identification.
Foetal testosterone and the child systemizing quotient
TLDR
It is suggested that the levels of fT are a biological factor influencing cognitive sex differences and lends support to the empathizing-systemizing theory of sex differences.

TLDR
Physicians need to be aware that there is a possibility of developing symptoms of PCOS in women of reproductive age who are treated with antiepileptic drugs and the choice of antiePileptic drug for women with epilepsy or bipolar disorder should be based on the most effective agent for controlling neurologic symptoms.
Foetal testosterone, social relationships, and restricted interests in children.
TLDR
Findings implicate foetal testosterone in both social development and attentional focus and may have implications for understanding the sex ratio in autism.

TLDR
Improved endocrine, surgical, and psychological management could contribute to improving fertility chances in women with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and to review the causes of reduced fertility.
