Abstract

differentiation is mediated by the fetal testes, which is responsible for Wolffian duct stabilization, Mullerian duct regression, closure of the urogenital sinus and urethral groove and growth of the phallus [1].In pregnancy, insufficient testicular hormone in the male fetus during the gonadogenesis period, leads to phallus formation without structural abnormalities of the genital tract [2], the patients are either phenotypically female or have ambiguous genitalia with 46 XY karyotype [1].
