Diethylstilbestrol is a synthetic, nonsteroidal form of estrogen. A well-known teratogen and carcinogen, diethylstilbestrol inhibits the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, thereby blocking the testicular synthesis of testosterone, lowering plasma testosterone, and inducing a chemical castration. Diethylstilbestrol is used in the treatment of menopausal and postmenopausal disorders. It was also used formerly as a growth promoter in animals. [National Center for Biotechnology Information.
