Gynecomastia (male breasts)

Eunuchoidism is the failure of puberty to begin and proceed. There should be no hormonal increase that would result in gynecomastia. A less obvious feature is that these individuals tend to have long legs and therefore a sitting height less than half of their standing height. Anosmia is commonly seen in eunuchoids because there is often a problem in the pituitary which may affect the nearby olfactory system.
