Children have a 50-percent chance of inheriting a mutation for androgen receptor insensitivity from a parent. While fathers have typically been left out of the equation given the male sterility associated with the condition, this case will force a rethinking of that dogma and encourage the use of testosterone and fertility treatments in men with the condition, says Tordjman.

“My suggestion is in any case like this with partial androgen insensitivity, even if you don’t know where in the androgen receptor gene the mutation lies, testosterone treatment is worth trying,” she says.
