Androgen insensitivity syndrome (

Androgen insensitivity syndrome
Goldberg-Maxwell syndrome
Male androgen insensitivity syndrome
People born with AIS have XY chromosomes and testes, and their bodies have varying levels of insensitivity to androgens (including testosterone). This means that their cells do not respond typically to the testosterone that they produce. Like other variations in sex characteristics, AIS is a spectrum, with the subcategories of complete (CAIS), partial (PAIS), and mild androgen insensitivity (MAIS). The term "male androgen insensitivity syndrome" should not be used to describe this variation because many people with AIS are women.
