Abstract

It is not our purpose to attempt to cover the subject of hermaphrodism or even the various types of internal, external, complete or secondary pseudohermaphrodism. To those interested in this phase of the subject may be referred some of the literature encountered by us; namely, articles by Bell,1 Goldjanitzki,2 Kreuter,3 Quimby,4 Thorek,5 Gibson6 and others. We considered this case, however, to be one of sufficient rarity and interest to be included in the literature, and, furthermore, the satisfactory result prompted us to report it. The child was fortunately brought to our attention early enough to spare her the humiliation of being conscious of being different from her associates. As Bell1 states, the secondary sex characteristic in all cases of partial hermaphrodism are opposite in type to the declared sex of the gonads. However, in spite of this, it was deemed essential to determine
