Mosaicism

 

This refers to more than one type of chromosome complement in a single individual. For example the male genetic constitution is XY and that of female is XX. Some true hermaphrodites would have some of their tissues having XX and others XY. This is mosaicism. Mosaicism is also common in Klinefelter's, Turner's  and XYY syndromes.
