A number of investigators have reported on a rather rare syndrome of excess aromatase activity. In boys, it can lead to gynecomastia , and in girls to precocious puberty and gigantomastia . In both sexes, early epiphyseal closure leads to short stature. This condition is due to mutations in the CYP19A1 gene which encodes aromatase. [16] It is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. [17] It has been suggested that the pharaoh Akhenaten and other members of his family may have suffered from this disorder, [18] but more recent genetic tests suggest otherwise. [19] It is one of the causes of familial precocious puberty—a condition first described in 1937. [20]
