Abstract Androgens have an extensive influence on brain development in regions of the brain that are relevant for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet their etiological involvement remains unclear. Hypospadias (abnormal positioning of the urethral opening) and cryptorchidism (undescended testes) are 2 relatively common male birth defects that are strongly associated with prenatal androgen deficiencies. Having either disorder is a proxy indicator of atypical gestational androgen exposure, yet the association between these disorders and autism has not been extensively studied. We analyzed male singleton live births (...

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a behaviorally diagnosed disorder reflecting clinically significant and persistent impairments in social communication and restricted and repetitive behaviors, interests, and activities. Autism spectrum disorder is a heterogeneous disorder, with variability in severity of impairment, intellectual, and language ability and comorbid behavioral and medical concerns. The diagnostic category has undergone historical shifts over time, changing the boundaries of inclusion and categorization. As noted by Chaste et al, our understanding of the etiology of ASD is complex and has also evolved through...

In a new JAMA study of more than 6,000 first-graders, researchers estimate that between 1.1% and 9.8% of American children have developmental or neurological problems caused by fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs)—a significantly higher number than previous studies have reported. And out of the hundreds of children determined in the study to have FASD, only two had been previously diagnosed. The estimate comes from school-based assessments, family interviews and in-person evaluations of 6- and 7-year-olds in four communities across the country: one in the Midwest, one in the Rocky Mountains, one in the Southeast ...
