Abstract

Among the disorder sexual development which regroups several pathological entities, true hermaphroditism or Ovotestis disorder remains a rare variety. We report a case of true hermaphroditism, diagnosed at the age of 15 years. Despite the presence of sexual ambiguity at birth, the female gender has been declared. The presence of a female genital tract and secondary sexual characteristics has led the choice of scrotal excision. The surgical procedure, the histological study bestow the positive diagnosis and allowed to revise the sexual ambiguity.
