In brief: A.I.S. Quick Answer

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. The effect of androgen insensitivity is potentially quite profound.
