A frequently-used social and medical adjective for people with DSDs is "intersex". Disorders of sexual development DSD encompass a group of congenital conditions associated with atypical development of internal and external genital structures.
Perspectives in Biology and Medicine. Sox9 expression during gonadal development implies a conserved role for the gene in testis differentiation in mammals and birds.
Considerations include risk of malignant degeneration, fertility potential, and ability to bring the gonads into a location for repeated physical examinations. Deletions of 9p and the quest for a conserved mechanism of sex determination. The secreted frizzled-related proteins SFRP1 and 2 are required for correct gubernaculum development and testicular descent Cholesterol side chain cleavage mutations CYP11A1.

It is caused by a shortage early in life of an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT.
Sertoli cell signaling by Desert hedgehog regulates the male germline. Surgery in disorders of sex development DSD with a gender issue: If why , when, and how? Apoptosis is also affected by Shh. Endodermal epithelial cells from the urogenital sinus are thought to invade the genital tubercle to form the midline epithelial urethral plate, which lies in the roof of the primary urethral groove and extends to the tip of the phallus , Endothelial cell migration directs testis cord formation.
