Testosterone is a C-19 steroid secreted from the testis and the adrenal cortex in men and from the adrenal cortex and ovary in women. Testosterone is also produced by peripheral tissues from androstenedione, which is of little physiological significance in men, however in women about half of circulating testosterone is derived from this origin. The action of testosterone is both androgenic or anabolic. Testosterone measurements are used mainly for clinical evaluation of hypogonadism in males and hyperandrogenic states in females.
