Answer

Undescended testicles or hydrocele may be present in boys. Males are frequently sterile because of the absence of the vas deferens. Therefore, male infertility may be one of the presentations.

Fertility is maintained, although possibly decreased, in females. Secondary sexual development is often delayed. Amenorrhea may occur in females with severe nutritional or pulmonary involvement.
