The management of paediatric hermaphroditism
AbstractThe management, between 1963 and 1973, of 33 cases of hermaphroditism in infants and children at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, Cape Town, is presented. The authors favour a simple classification. There were 8 cases of female pseudohermaphroditism, 6 cases of testicular feminising syndrome and 19 cases of hermaphroditism. Of the latter, 13 were true hermaphrodites, 3 mixed gonadal dysgenesis and 3 male pseudohermaphrodites. Tables presenting the external and internal morphology, gonadal identity and illustrations of these, are presented. Results of leucocyte and tissue chromosome cultures are shown.
