The screening questionnaires on late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) in males are being gradually perfected with the progress in the researches on this problem. Among the more commonly used screeners are the Aging Male Symptoms Scale (AMS), Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Males Questionnaire (ADAM) and Massachusetts Male Aging Survey Questionnaire (MMAS), which are intended for the screening or diagnosis of LOH as well as for the evaluation of its therapeutic results. Nowadays LOH-related researches are mostly concentrated on the utilization of the questionnaires, validation of their sensitivity and specificity, correlation of screening outcomes or some items with serum hormone levels, and comparison of different screening questionnaires, etc. This paper reviews the status quo of the researches on and utilization of screening questionnaires on LOH together with the sensitivity and specificity of the questionnaires.
