Abstract

A woman presented with virilization symptoms and elevated testosterone; however, a neoplastic source of excess androgen was not found on imaging. Eventually, the patient revealed she was exposed to transdermal testosterone used by her partner. This case highlights the importance of considering exogenous androgens in the differential diagnosis of virilization.
