Abstract

The true hermaphroditism represents only 5% of all disorders of sexual differentiation, thus it is one of the rarest varieties. Diagnosis of true hermaphroditism requires the presence of both ovary and testis either as separate organs or combined to form unilateral or bilateral ovotestis. Dysgerminoma is one of the tumours which are commonly seen in true hermaphrodites. The main treatment modality includes removal of the dysgerminoma followed by chemotherapy if the tumour is Ib-IV stage So, early diagnosis of hermaphrodite and associated tumours can help the patient to lead a better life ahead as enlarged tumours have more aggressive treatment and are associated with poor prognosis. We are presenting this case because true hermaphrodites are themselves rare, and association with germ cell tumours is still rarer. This case is still special as the diagnosis of true hermaphrodite was made during surgery only.
