What is the disease where men have female genetalia?

I was watching CSI:Miami yesterday and this guy had this Disease like "NIA" or something I was wondering what it was really called. Or if its a real disease
On the show it was called like "NIA" OR "IAN" something of those letters

AIS, perhaps? It stands for Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (and can be full or partial insensitivity). It occurs in 1 out of every 20,000 births. It prevents the cells of a fetus from recognizing androgen (referred to as a male hormone even though it is ordinarily present and active in both men and women) and as a result during development the genitals differentiate in the female, rather than male, pattern and as a result. The effects differ with the level of androgen insensitivity. It is also genetically linked. If someone has it they will be able to find relatives who have it/have had it.

The newborn AIS infant (with full insensitivity) has genitals of normal female appearance, undescended or partially descended testes, and usually a short vagina with no cervix. Occasionally the vagina is nearly absent. AIS individuals are clearly women. At puberty, the testes are stimulated by the pituitary gland, and produce testosterone. Because testosterone is chemically very similar to estrogen, some of the testosterone converts back to estrogen (“aromatizes”) in the bloodstream. This estrogen produces breast growth, though it may be late. Women with AIS do not menstruate, and are not fertile. Because the development of pubic and underarm hair, in women as well as in men, depends upon testosterone, most AIS women have no pubic or underarm hair, but some have sparse hair.

The term hermaphrodite is innacurate. The mythological term “hermaphrodite” implies that a person is both fully male and fully female. This is a physiologic impossibility.

It is also not a 'disease' but rather the biological result of many different 'causes'. The more appropriate term to use (instead of hermaphrodite) is intersex. Intersex can be caused by many different things (check out isna.org)  (+ info)

Diabetes is NOT CONTAGIOUS. If one person is diabetic, it has NO effect on his/her partner's chances of getting diabetes. There is some genetic component in the disease, so a diabetic's biological children are at an increased risk, but not anyone who's not related to the patient.

Diabetes can damage nerves. Male diabetics can experience difficulty in getting and keeping an erection, and female diabetics can find it difficult to become aroused and have an orgasm because of nerve damage.  (+ info)

Endometriosis causes pain in some women and can also cause infertility.
