Kallmann's syndrome

Kallmann's syndrome
a familial condition that is the most common form of isolated gonadotrophin deficiency; it is combined with underdevelopment of the olfactory lobes, causing anosmia. The syndrome is caused by a gene deletion on the short arm of the X chromosome. Patients often present with delayed puberty. There is an association with ichthyosis, mental retardation, obesity, renal and skeletal abnormalities, and undescended testes, but these features are very variable.
F. J. Kallmann (1897-1965), US geneticist
