The 46, XY DSD can be categorized as disorders of testis development (e.g., complete or partial gonadal dysgenesis), disorders of androgen synthesis [e.g., 3[beta]-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 2, 17[alpha]-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase, 17[beta]-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, or 5[alpha]-reductase type 2 deficiency (5ARD)], disorders of androgen action (e.g., androgen insensitivity syndrome due to mutations in the androgen receptor gene), and other conditions affecting sex development.

Examples of these conditions are congenital adrenal hyperplasia and androgen insensitivity syndrome.
The incidence of androgen insensitivity syndrome is estimated to be 1:20, 000-64, 000 male births and with variable phenotype expression, this syndrome can present as complete or partial forms.
