Abstract This article examines the studies on the pregnancies of true hermaphrodites and self-fertilization in hermaphrodite mammals that have been published in the last 40 years. The number of hermaphrodite pregnants reported in the literature since 1975 was 14, the number of pregnancies was 26 and the number of healthy born babies was 20. All of the babies that were born were male. The pregnancy developed following gonadectomy in seven cases (nine pregnancies). In some cases, either… Expand
Reply to: The existence of parthenogenesis in the human species, poses an interesting question: is it conceivable that auto-fertilization may occur in human true hermaphrodites?

The letter from Dr. Bayraktar [1] commenting on the article by Benagiano and Dallapiccola [2] on the existence of parthenogenesis in the human species, poses an interesting question: is itExpand
Ovotesticular Disorder With Seminoma
TLDR
A case of true hermaphroditism which was diagnosed with seminoma on histopathological examination is reported which underwent orchiectomy, followed by two cycles of chemotherapy. Expand

TLDR
The Benagiano and Dallapiccola position is simple: no known natural or experimental biological mechanism capable of explaining the conception and birth of Christ is found; therefore, it is considered pure speculation any biological debate on the subject. Expand
Sex Chromosome DSD
TLDR
Some DSD are caused by atypical combinations of sex chromosomes, which include girls with Turner syndrome and Y-chromosomal cell lines, as well as patterns of asymmetrical sex development where a 45,X/46,XY pattern produces mixed gonadal dysgenesis and 46,XX/ 46,XY (and other variations) may cause ovo-testicular DSD.

Gender identity disorder (GID) in adolescents and adults with differences of sex development (DSD): A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Each DSD patient is unique and they warrant multi-disciplinary care and long term psycho sexual support and no recommendations on sex of rearing could be made in these conditions. Expand
