genetic human male
- an individual with a karyotype containing a Y chromosome;
- an individual whose cell nuclei do not contain Barr sex chromatin bodies, which are normally present in females. Patients with ambiguous sexual development and those with Turner syndrome are classed as genetic males or genetic females according to the absence or presence of Barr bodies even though their sex chromosome complement may suggest otherwise.
