Ovotesticular Disorder of Sex Development (Ovotestis) in Simpson–Golabi–Behmel Syndrome: Expansion of the Clinical Spectrum

The postmortem findings in 3 second-trimester male siblings with SGBS who displayed ambiguous genitalia and gonadal dysgenesis (ovotestis) are reported, thus expanding the SGBS spectrum to include these disorders of sex development.

Gonadal Dominance and Internal Genitalia Phenotypes of Patients with Ovotesticular Disorders of Sex Development: Report of 22 Cases and Literature Review

OT-DSD is a typical model of unilateral gonadal determinism: the uterus is present on the side of the ovotestis and ovary and the internal genital organs predominantly exhibit female characteristics, however, combined reproductive tract malformation and ovarian function of premature failure are not uncommon.

nr5a1 pathogenic variant identified in non syndromic 46 xy ovotesticular disorder of sexual development

This is the first case of non-syndromic 46, XY ovotesticular DSD to be associated with a pathogenic variant in NR5A1, and it is reported that the child was born with a pseudovagina, ovary, fallopian tube, testes, and club feet for which he had already undergone surgical repair.

The Spectrum of Ovotesticular Disorders of Sex Development in South Africa: A Single-Centre Experience

OT DSD is an important differential diagnosis in Black South Africans with 46,XX DSD, and spontaneous puberty in 5 subjects, gender dysphoria in 2 subjects, and neuropsychiatric disorders in 4 subjects are revealed.

Histological Assessment of Gonads in DSD: Relevance for Clinical Management

It is expected that the International DSD Registry will stimulate international collaborations, facilitating better diagnostic procedures as well as research, and the opportunities in the field of virtual diagnostic pathology will be presented.

Cytogenetic profile of patients with clinical spectrum of ambiguous genitalia, amenorrhea, and Turner phenotype: A 21‐year single‐center experience

The frequency of chromosomal abnormalities observed in Moroccan patients with PA is comparable to that reported in Tunisia, Turkey, Iran, and Hong Kong, however, the frequency is significantly less than that identified in India, Malaysia, Italy, and Romania.

Long-term follow-up of a case of Sex Chromosomal Mosaicism with Disorder of Sex Development

A long term follow-up of a 15-year-old male evaluated for ambiguous genitalia with a karyotype of 46, XY (85%) / 46, XX (15%) is reported in view of the interesting clinical presentation of this rare mosaicism.

Pediatric germ cell tumors.

Germ cell tumors in the pediatric age group conform a heterogeneous collection of neoplastic entities whose common denominator is their origin in progenitor germ cells. The three major types include

Whole genome sequencing identifies a cryptic SOX9 regulatory element duplication underlying a case of 46,XX ovotesticular difference of sexual development

A child diagnosed with SRY-negative 46,XX OT-DSD is described after completing a series of complex clinical genetic analyses, including chromosomal microarray, DSD gene panel, sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis, whole exome sequencing, and whole genome sequencing.

Hemihyperplasia: History of medicine assists medical genetics.



Crossed ectopia of ovotestis in a case of true hermaphroditism.

Ovotesticular disorder of sex development with a prostatic gland and review of literature

A case in which prostate tissue is demonstrated using endoscopic and radiologic methods in a 46‐XX, sex determining region of the Y chromosome negative male phenotypic patient, with no female internal genitalia, is presented.

Pregnancy and childbirth in a true hermaphrodite.

A rare case of pregnancy and parturition in a true hermaphrodite is reported, who had an ovotestis on the left and an ovary on the right gonad, with a karyotype of 46,XX.

True hermaphroditism: sonographic demonstration of ovotestes.

The diagnosis of true hermaphroditism and ovotestis should be considered in a phenotypic male adolescent with gynecomastia when testicular parenchyma is heterogeneous at US because of multiple scattered cysts.

True hermaphroditism: clinical aspects and molecular studies in 16 cases.

The mechanism through which testicular tissue develops without SRY has not yet been completely clarified, suggesting the involvement of the X chromosome as well as autosomal genes in the process.

Preservation of gonadal function in true hermaphroditism.

Early gender assignment in true hermaphroditism.

This classification, based on the appearance of the external genitalia, allows a simple screening and prompt gender assignment in infants identified as true hermaphrodites.
