Resumen

Los andrógenos cumplen importantes funciones fisiológicas en la mujer, sin embargo un síndrome de deficiencia androgénica es difícil de caracterizar y su tratamiento motivo de controversia. Generalmente se considera a los andrógenos como un elemento "nocivo" sobre la belleza y salud femeninas. Aunque cumplen importantes roles y en la posmenopausia constituyen el principal sustrato a partir del cual se sintetizan los estrógenos. Los escasos o antiguos conocimientos, o ambos, sobre el rol de los andrógenos en la mujer son uno de los problemas para optimizar el diagnóstico y el tratamiento. El presente artículo busca realizar una revisión de los conocimientos sobre los cambios del nivel de andrógenos con la edad y el uso de medicación, los caracteres de la insuficiencia androgénica en la mujer y las bases de la sustitución androgénica. Se busca optimizar el diagnóstico y el tratamiento del déficit androgénico en la mujer.
