PURPOSE We surveyed a clinic sample of adult 46,XY intersex patients regarding attitudes to clinical management policies. MATERIALS AND METHODS All adult former patients of 1 pediatric endocrine clinic in the eastern United States whose addresses could be obtained and who consented to participation were surveyed by a comprehensive written followup questionnaire. Three questions on attitudes concerning the desirability of a third gender category and the age at which genital surgery should be… Expand
Current views on evaluation, management, and gender assignment of the intersex infant
TLDR
Current understanding of the evaluation and management of intersex conditions is reviewed and Hormonal and genetic factors may have a more important role in gender identity and sexual satisfaction than previously recognized. Expand
Medical treatment of intersex: parental perspectives.
TLDR
Most parents of minor females with CAH who were born with genital ambiguity indicated that they were well informed and involved in the medical care given to their daughters, and in most instances parents indicated that genital surgery was indicated during infancy and should be undertaken even at the risk of reducing genital sensitivity. Expand
Early Genital Surgery in Disorders/Differences of Sex Development: Patients’ Perspectives
TLDR
Outcome data failed to support a general moratorium on early elective genital surgery, and case-by-case decision-making is better suited to grasping the ethical complexity of the issues at stake. Expand
A psychosexual follow-up study of patients with mixed or partial gonadal dysgenesis.
TLDR
Although gender identity differentiated largely in accordance with sex assignment or sex of rearing in the sample, the patients reared as female appeared to have poorer sexual adjustment than the males. Expand
Early assessment of ambiguous genitalia
TLDR
Not all intersex conditions are apparent at birth (for example, complete androgen insensitivity may only become apparent in a child with a testis within an inguinal hernia, or at puberty with primary amenorrhoea and lack of androgen hair), only those presenting with genital ambiguity at birth will be considered in this article. Expand
Sex assignment for newborns with ambiguous genitalia and exposure to fetal testosterone: attitudes and practices of pediatric urologists.
TLDR
Pediatric urologists are in strong consensus about sex assignment for newborns with ambiguous genitalia from CAH, a team approach with parental involvement, and early reconstruction, yet there is striking variability in attitudes toward sex assignment, which should be incorporated into the decision-making process with parents. Expand
Sexual quality of life of individuals with 46,XY disorders of sex development.
TLDR
Differences in SexQoL between diagnostic subgroups, effect of corrective genital surgery, and the influence of gender assignment will have to be further investigated in future studies. Expand
Long-term surgical results and patient satisfaction with male pseudohermaphroditism or true hermaphroditism: a cohort of 63 patients.
TLDR
Results of intersex surgery have clearly improved with time, and apart from a patient with 5alpha-reductase deficiency who underwent a successful sex change, no patient expressed dissatisfaction with sex of rearing. Expand
Sexual quality of life after hormonal and surgical treatment, including phalloplasty, in men with micropenis: a review.
TLDR
The literature review supports the conclusions that male gender assignment is preferable for most 46,XY infants with congenital micropenis and psychological support should be an integral part of management in order to alleviate the distress and impairment of QoL experienced by these individuals. Expand
Long-term surgical outcome of masculinizing genitoplasty in large cohort of patients with disorders of sex development.
TLDR
Most patients with 46,XY disorders of sex development were satisfied with long-term results of masculinizing genitoplasty, although specific complaints about small penile length, sexual activity and urinary symptoms were frequent. Expand

Ethics and the Management of the Patient with Intersex: A Middle Way
TLDR
It is argued for a middle way, involving shared decision making with parents of children with intersex and the honoring of parental preferences for or against surgery, which no longer conform to modern legal or ethical standards of care. Expand
Complete androgen insensitivity syndrome: long-term medical, surgical, and psychosexual outcome.
TLDR
Although not perfect, the medical, surgical, and psychosexual outcomes for women with CAIS were satisfactory; however, specific ways for improving long-term treatment of this population were identified. Expand
Congenital Micropenis: Long-Term Medical, Surgical and Psychosexual Follow-Up of Individuals Raised Male or Female
TLDR
Regarding choice of gender, male sex of rearing can result in satisfactory genito-sexual function and female gender can also result in success, however it requires extensive feminizing surgery. Expand
Management of Intersexuality: Guidelines for Dealing With Persons With Ambiguous Genitalia
TLDR
Suggestions on how to manage cases of traumatized or ambiguous genitalia are offered, based on experiences, the input of some trusted colleagues, the comments of intersexed persons of various origins, and the best interpretation of the reading of the literature. Expand
Feminizing genitoplasty for congenital adrenal hyperplasia: what happens at puberty?
TLDR
It is believed that in some cases it may be best to defer definitive reconstruction of the intermediate or high vagina until after puberty, as the psychological issues surrounding sexuality in patients are inadequately researched and poorly understood. Expand
Objective cosmetic and anatomical outcomes at adolescence of feminising surgery for ambiguous genitalia done in childhood
TLDR
A retrospective study of cosmetic and anatomical outcomes in 44 adolescent patients who had ambiguous genitalia in childhood and underwent feminising genital surgery finds that most patients needed further treatment to the genitalia for cosmesis, tampon use, or intercourse. Expand

TLDR
The GID part of the debate aside is left aside and the question of gender assignment and related issues in intersexuality is concentrated on. Expand
