Default 5a - reductase deficiency

Hi guys,

quick question - FA doesn't mention it, but shouldn't the FSH be increased, as the testes should not be able to produce inhibin B (due to increased temperature caused by the internal position of the testes)? Would be grand if you could help me! Thanks in advance!
