Pituitary gland is an endocrine gland which is pea-sized and is situated in the middle of the base of the skull. Pituitary gland is protected in the bony cavity known as sella turcica and it plays an important role in regulating the hormone levels. There are hormones secreted by the pituitary gland and one of these are Gonadotropins which helps in stimulating gonads or sex glands to regulate the reproductive functions. In females these glands are called ovaries whereas in males it is known as Follicle-stimulating hormones. Gonadotropin includes Follicle stimulating hormone and Luteinizing hormones which helps in enhancing the functioning of testes and ovaries. When this hormone does not work properly then it gives rise to a condition known as Hypogonadism and through this article we are going to discuss it more in detail.
Hypogonadism is defined as when the function of both testes and ovaries are diminished and they do not produce enough sex hormone. Sex hormones are also responsible for regulating production of sperms and menstrual cycle. Hypogonadism results in low levels of estrogen which is referred to as hypoestrogenism whereas the low levels of androgen is called hyperandrogenism. Sex hormones help in controlling secondary characteristics like development of breast in females and in males testicular development as well as pubic hair growth. According to American College of Physician in January 2020, it was ruled out that Men are more affected by Hypogonadism as compared to Women. Hypogonadism is divided into different parts and one is the Affected system which includes Kallmann Syndrome.
What is Kallmann Syndrome
It is the condition which causes hypogonadotropic hypogonadism where the along with sex organs the sense of smell is also effected. In this condition the sense of smell is completely diminished known as Hyposmia or it is completely absent which is called anosmia. Males are more affected as compared to females and 1 in every 30,000 males are affected with Kallmann whereas One in every 120,000 females.

There are more than 20 genes which are related to Kallmann syndrome and among these are the mutation of genes like ANOS1, CHD7, FGF8, FGFR1, PROK2 or PROKR2. The genes that are related to Kallmann syndrome are important for the development of certain areas in the brain and also in forming the structure of the olfactory bulb. In this syndrome the genes that are responsible for migration of neurons help in producing the hormone called Gonadotropin-releasing hormone. One of the causes can also be inheritance from the family member.
Physical examination is one of the main methods which helps in diagnosis and it is divided into different stages including the development of hairs with examination of feminine and masculine features.
