2. A clinical condition with ↓ or absent phenotypic expression of a person's sexual genotype, which may be 1º, due to a lack of end organ response to FSH or LH produced normally by an intact pituitary gland–hypergonadotropic hypogonadism, or 2º to defective hypothalamic or pituitary hormonal activity–hypogonadotropic hypogonadism
