Abstract :

The association of autism with facial masculinization among males and females is examined. The facial analyses showed that higher levels of autistic traits were associated with less feminine facial structures in females and less masculine structures in males. The results indicate sex-specific relationships between autistic traits and facial masculinity/femininity.
