When the body can't respond to male sex hormones, partial androgen insensitivity syndrome is a genetic problem that takes place. Testosterone is a male sex hormonal agent. PAIS is a type of androgen insensitivity syndrome. Androgen insensitivity syndrome is among the conditions that are referred to as intersex. As a child grows inside the womb, man or female genital areas develop depending on both of sex chromosomes the infant has from the parents. In PAIS, there is a change in the gene on the X chromosome that helps the body recognize and use male hormonal agents effectively. At birth, the infant may have unclear external genitals. If only one copy of the X chromosome lugs the genetic mutation, people with 2 X chromosomes are not affected. Family background is vital in identifying risk factors of PAIS.
