In brief: Genetic Condition
Kallmann's syndrome is a genetic condition characterized by the failure to commence or complete puberty.
It causes hypogonadism (low level of circulating sex related hormones; testosterone in men and estrogen and Progesterone in women) and is accompanied by a total lack of the sense of smell (anosmia) or a heavily reduced sense of smell (hyposmia). The diagnosis is made by a full endocrine eval.

Kallmans can be treated by testosterone replacement via injection, patch, pill ( not recommended these days) and ointment. There is even a patch inside the gums. THe more physiological way is HCG injections every other day to stimulate testosterone at the testicles. If fertility is wanted FSH injections as well. There is no cure for the lack of smell
