Diagnosis and management of androgen deficiency in young men
This unit aims to provide new knowledge and skills to assist GPs in the diagnosis and management of androgen deficiency in their younger male patients. The unit focuses on the need to undertake genital examinations on young men presenting with symptoms of androgen deficiency (to exclude Klinefelter's syndrome), and outlines a systematic approach to the investigation and management of androgen deficiency. The case study focuses on men with Klinefelter's syndrome, being the most common cause of androgen deficiency in younger men and a common genetic condition where most cases remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Please note: This case is a stand alone activity. If you want 40 RACGP Category 1 QI&CPD points, you will need to complete the entire Young Men's Health ALM which has the same course content for each case.
