WHAT DOES PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Pseudohermaphroditism

Pseudohermaphroditism, or pseudo-hermaphroditism, is the condition in which an organism is born with primary sex characteristics of one sex but develop the secondary sex characteristics that are different from what would be expected on the basis of the gonadal tissue. In some cases, the external sex organs look intermediate between a typical clitoris or penis. In other cases, the external sex organs have an appearance that would be expected to be seen with the "opposite" gonadal tissue. Because of this, pseudohermaphroditism is sometimes not identified until puberty. It is possible for the condition to be undetected until adulthood. The term "male pseudohermaphrodite" is used when a testis is present, and the term "female pseudohermaphrodite" is used when an ovary is present. The term "true" hermaphrodite is reserved for the very rare cases where both ovarian and testicular tissue are present. Associated conditions in males include 5-α-reductase deficiency from a deficiency in the male chromosome.
