Abstract
Intersex is the state of having ambiguous or inappropriate genitalia due to abnormalities of normal mechanisms for sexual development. Three broad subcategories of intersex have been defined according to the histology of the gonad: Female & male pseudohermaphroditism and true hermaphroditism. Twenty two cases of intersex are described. Among them, true hermaphroditism was 7 cas-es, female pseudohermaphroditism 10 cases and male pseudohermaphroditism 5 cases. The presenting symptoms, age of diagnosis, gender role, histologic findings of gonad & tre-atment are discussed. Review of literature and reference on intersex was attempted briefly.
Key Words: Intersex, Female & male Pseudohermaphroditism, True hermaphroditism
