Hermaphroditism

 

Several conditions in which there is presence of both testis and ovary in an individual either as separate tissue or combined to form a single organ called the ovotestis. In true hermaphroditism many are  XX/XY mosaics but majority have XX sex genetic constitution, which means they should have been phenotypically female.
 

It is false or pseudohermaphroditism when there is is ambiguous external genitalia caused by varying degrees of sex hormonal imbalance with ambiguous external genitalia as in the adrenogenital syndromes.
