Complete or Partial Gonadal Dysgenesis

Complete or partial gonadal dysgenesis is a congenital disorder affecting the development of external genitalia. The results of these anomalies vary from genetically male individuals having either nearly complete female genitalia or nearly complete male genitalia, both with a lack of the secondary sex characteristics that normally develop at puberty, along with complete infertility.

Surgical procedures need not be rushed, but support from a multidisciplinary team including an endocrinologist, urologist/gynecologist, geneticist, and psychologist should be sought.
