This report describes a well-masculinized 33-year-old man with infertility and primary hypogonadism in whom chromosomal evaluation revealed a 46, XX karyotype. This syndrome is a rare but important cause of hypergonadotropic hypogonadism in which the diagnosis can be delayed or missed. A review of the cytogenetic basis and clinical features is presented to raise awareness of this entity among clinicians and to emphasize the importance of appropriate laboratory testing when indicated.
