October 19: State of the Art – Differences of Sex Development
Title: Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (PAIS) – Commonly Suspected and Rarely Encountered
Speaker: Professor S. Faisal Ahmed, MBChB, MD, MA, FRCPCH, Developmental Endocrinology Research Group, University of Glasgow, Royal Hospital for Sick Children
Description: PAIS is a very rare condition, and each pediatric endocrinologist will probably not see more than a handful of cases in their local practice. However, the condition typifies the challenges that are encountered in the diagnosis and long-term management of conditions that affect sex development. This talk will focus on PAIS and cover several aspects of its management across the patient journey from infancy to adulthood.
