Özet

Background: Steroidogenic factor-1 (SF-1) gene (NR5A1) mutations cause disorders of sexual development due to gonadal dysgenesis, particularly in 46,XY individuals. In cases exhibiting this mutation, the phenotype is heterogeneous, and it may vary within a spectrum ranging from complete female appearance to an infertile male. Virilization observed in some cases in the pubertal age group may lead to diagnostic difficulties.
