dc.descriptionAkhenaton, the King of Egypt, was selected as the historical figure to be discussed during the 2008 conference. His image portrayed in statues and reliefs often depict androgenous attributes such as gynecomastia and large hips. Additionally, his head seems unusually elongated in some representations. While experts differ on whether or not the physical portrayals of Akhenaton are simply symbolic or realistic images, Dr. Braverman suggests that the king may have inherited two genetic disorders, aromatase excess syndrome and sagittal craniosynostosis syndrome.
