  • ditism, however, it is usually unicornuate, hypoplastic or rudimentary (Aaronson 1985). The features of feminization in form of gynaecomastia and menstruation in a patient with TH is the result of secretion of estradiol by ovarian tissue and therefore it is presumed that the female neuroendocrine axis functions normally in such individuals (Shannon and Nicolaides 1973). Bilateral gynaecomastia, presence of ovarian follicles and proliferative endometrium on histopathology was supportive evidence… CONTINUE READING
