Supplementary Table 2 Comparison of rheumatic/autoimmune diseases (RAD) and B27 frequency in male patients with hypogonadism (MPHG) and in controls (general population in Mexico City)

From: High frequency of association of rheumatic/autoimmune diseases and untreated male hypogonadism with severe testicular dysfunction
