BARRANTES RODRIGUEZ, Karla. Ginecomastia: manifestaciones, etiología, abordaje diagnóstico y tratamiento. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.1, pp.205-210. ISSN 2215-5287.

Gynecomastia is a common condition defined as the proliferation of male breast glandular tissue. It is benign in most cases and it can appear at any age. Due to its distinct etiology and physical/psychologic outcomes, a complete approach must be performed to rule out pathologic causes, and to offer precise treatment.

Keywords : Gynecomastia; breast neoplasms; adolescent; obesity; estrogens; testosterone; tamoxifen; aromatase; raloxifene.
