Is there a cure for congenital hypogonadism?

With the right treatment, congenital hypogonadism can be effectively cured. The precise form of treatment depends on how the congenital hypogonadism symptoms developed and at what age. For children and adolescents, hormone replacement therapy can help stimulate puberty, leading to normal development of secondary sex characteristics. For adults, hormones can offset the symptoms and body changes caused by congenital hypogonadism. Surgery and radiation therapy may be used for more serious cases.
