Measurement and correlates of ano-genital distance in healthy, newborn infants - anogenital distance in adults


The Relationship between Anogenital Distance, Fatherhood, and Fertility in Adult Men anogenital distance in adults

Ano-genital distance (AGD) is a sexually dimorphic trait that is a well established reproductive toxicity endpoint in animals. In male animals, a shortened AGD is associated with a variety of genital abnormalities including hypospadias and cryptorchidism. Consensus on the anatomical definition of Cited by:

anogenital distance has been associated with endocrine disruptors such as phthalates. Studies conducted in young adults found that a shorter anoscrotal distance was a predictor of low sperm concentration, and a longer anoscrotal distance was associated with fatherhood, a higher sperm density and a higher total motile sperm by:

Sep 18,  · A limitation of the present study is the number of subjects, although the small sample size was similar to that reported in other studies on anogenital distance in adults 5, 6. We selected hospital outpatient controls without a diagnosis of cancer rather than population controls because of difficulties in measuring anogenital distances in Cited by:

Anogenital distance (AGD), the distance from anus to genitals, is a sexually dimorphic measurement that has long been used to determine the sex of newborn rodent pups. Numerous animal studies have identified AGD as an androgen-sensitive endpoint, with a shortened distance in male offspring Cited by:
