2013-09-24 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


Abnormal enlargement of the clitoris in fetal life may be a sign for different pathologies. To the investigators knowledge there is no published nomogram of the clitoris size through gestation and it's assessment is usually subjective. The purpose of this study is to create a nomogram of clitorial size through gestation by measuring its size in fetuses of different age in the second and third trimester.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of sexual ambiguity in which the individual (pseudohermaphrodite) possesses gonadal tissue of one SEX but exhibits external PHENOTYPE of the opposite sex. Female pseudohermaphroditism is an individual with XX karyotype, normal development of OVARIES and internal reproductive tract, but with ambiguous or virilized external GENITALIA. Male pseudohermaphroditism is characterized by the presence of a Y CHROMOSOME and TESTES, but the genital tract and external genitalia are ambiguous or completely female.
