Der normale Androgenhaushalt der Frau

  • Freimut A. Leidenberger


Die Gruppe der androgenwirksamen Sexualsteroide, C19-Steroide, werden in den Nebennierenrinden und den Gonaden gebildet. Sie entstehen auch in der Peripherie durch Umwandlung aus Vorstufen. Eine weitgehend normale Androgensekretion, -metabo-lisierung und -Wirkung sind Voraussetzung für die Entwicklung und Differenzierung der sekundären Geschlechtsmerkmale und -organe sowie für die normalen Fortpflanzungsfunktionen bei Mann und Frau.
