Brief introduction of hermaphroditism

Hermaphroditism refers to an individual's sexual organs with male and female manifestations, which are caused by sex chromosome aberration, and abnormal androgen secretion leads to abnormal development of embryonic sexual organs. If the same body has both testicles and ovaries, its external genitalia and secondary sexual characteristics are between the sexes, which is called true hermaphroditism. If the gonad is inconsistent with the external genitalia, it is called pseudohermaphroditism. If the external genitalia is similar to that of women and the internal genitalia is testicles, it is called male pseudohermaphroditism. On the contrary, the external genitalia is similar to the male internal genitalia and is called female pseudohermaphroditism.
