Disorders of sex development (DSDs) are estimated to be prevalent in 0.1–2% of the global population, although these figures are unlikely to adequately represent non-white patients as they are largely based on studies performed in Europe and the USA. Possible causes of DSDs include disruptions to gene expression and regulation—processes that are considered essential for the development of testes and ovaries in the embryo. Gender dysphoria generally affects between 8.5–20% of individuals with… Expand

Gender Change from Female to Male in Classical Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
TLDR
The most plausible factors contributing to cross-gender identity development in these patients appeared to be neither a particular genotype or endocrinotype nor a sex-typing bias on the part of the parents but a combination of a gender-atypical behavioral self-image, aGender- atypical body image, and the development of erotic attraction to women.

Psychosexual Development of Women with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
TLDR
Compared to the controls, the women with CAH recalled more cross-gender role behavior and less comfort with their sense of "femininity" during childhood, and the two groups did not differ in degree of gender dysphoria in adulthood, although the probands showed moreCross- gender role identification.

TLDR
Overall women with CAH were moderately satisfied with the cosmetic appearance of the genitalia but the SL group reported worse genital function than the SV group, and women with the SV form reported greater satisfaction and fewer concerns regarding their psychosexual and surgical outcome. Expand

Prenatal Androgenization Affects Gender-Related Behavior But Not Gender Identity in 5–12-Year-Old Girls with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
TLDR
It is concluded that prenatal androgenization of 46,XX fetuses leads to marked masculinization of later gender-related behavior, but the absence of any increased gender-identity confusion/dysphoria does not indicate a direct determination of gender identity by prenatal androgens and does not support a male gender assignment at birth of the most markedly masculinized girls.

TLDR
Preliminary recommendations based on clinical experience, study of the literature, and interviews with affected individuals are suggested, given that the empirical basis of knowledge of the causes, treatment options, long-term outcomes, and patient preferences is insufficient. Expand

Intersex conditions are, however, difficult to treat because they may intrinsically perturb complex aspects of the person’s gender identity, gender-role behavior, sexual orientation, sexual functioning, and psychologic adjustment. Expand
