In brief: Genetic condition

In androgen insensitivity syndrome the patient is genetically male (i.
e. Has both an x and a y chromosome), but the tissues do not respond normally to male hormones in the course of development, so the external body appearance is closer to that of a female.

In brief: Here You Go:

Androgen insensitivity syndrome (ais) is when a person who is genetically male (who has one x and one y chromosome) is resistant to male hormones (called androgens).
As a result, the person has some or all of the physical traits of a woman, but the genetic makeup of a man.

In brief: Genetic

The androgen insensitivity syndrome is a genetic condition in which the cells of a genetic male (i.
e. Born with an x and a y chromosome) do not respond to testosterone so that the patient develops the external bodily appearance of a female.
