A candidate gene for sex determination was localized within a 35 kb region of the Y chromosome immediately adjacent to the pseudoautosomal boundary. Here, we describe a study of Sry detection in the gonads of intersex patients including 5 male pseudohermaphrodite (MPH), 4 XX true hermaphrodite (TH) and each 1 mixed gonadal dysgenesis (MGD) and XX sex(More)
