The Doctors: Kallmann Syndrome & 27-Year-Old Man Hasn’t Hit Puberty
On “TMI Tuesday” this week, the doctors encountered Brandon, a 27-year-0ld-man that hasn’t hit puberty. Despite his imposing height of 6’3″, Brandon had no hair on his arms, legs, or face, and basically had the same voice he had when he was 12. Beyond a show of a doubt, all of the doctors agreed that Brandon had yet to undergo puberty.
Since Brandon also lacked a sense of smell, the doctors knew that there was an issue with his pituitary gland, a key player in the occurrence of puberty. As it turned out, Brandon had extremely low levels of testosterone and other hormones necessary for puberty. The doctors came to the conclusion that Brandon had Kallmann syndrome, and they worked on a solution for it.

She also had a large bump on her head identified as a Pilar Cyst, and the doctors removed that for her as well.

Nathalie came into the show with an unusual problem—dark, leathery skin on her hands and feet.

Then, the doctors tried to diagnose eczema in another patient, who wished to remain anonymous. They also listed out some of the symptoms of eczema.
