At this time L.H. & F.S.H. hormone is secreted from pituitary gland in brain. These hormone act as Germ cell & Sertoli cells in testis leading to there growth. This enlargement is size continues upto 18 years, ultimately reaching size of 12 to 25 ml. Other hormones which control testis size are growth hormone IGF-1 & others.

(hypothalamic or pituitary deficiency) Hypogonadotropic states: Hypothalamic
– pituitary deficiency: Idiopathic GnRH deficiency, Kallman syndrome,
Prader-Willi syndrome, Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome , Hypothalmic
deficiency, pituitary hypoplasia, Trauma, post surgical, postoradiation,
Tumour (Adenoma, craniopharyngioma, other), Vascular (pituitary infraction,
carotid aneurysm), Infiltrative (Sarcoidosis, histiocytosis, tuberculosis,
fugal infection, hemochromatosis) Autoimmune hypophysitis, drug-induced
hyperprolactinemia, Untreated endocrinopathies , Glucorticoid excess,
Hypopituitarism, Cushing disease, Addison disease.
