Androgen insensitivity refers to an inability of the body to react correctly to male sex bodily hormones (androgens) made while pregnant.

Partial androgen ignorance syndrome (pais) belongs to a spectrum of disorders that likewise consists of androgen ignorance disorder (AIS) and light androgen ignorance disorder (mais). In each case, the property development of the reproductive and also genital organs of the unborn child is affected, as an outcome of the genetics mutation.
