Relevance to General Practice

Male hypogonadism is a clinical syndrome that occurs due to disruption of the hypothalamic–pituitary–testicular (HPT) axis, and results in failure to produce physiological levels of testosterone and normal numbers of spermatozoa. 

In Australia, the prevalence of organic hypogonadism is about 1 in 500 men. The prevalence of functional hypogonadism in adult menLOH varies according to the definition, from about 2% to 12%.
