Medical Term:

male hermaphroditism

 

Definition: correctly designated as male pseudohermaphroditism, as the term is commonly used; they have chromatin negative nuclei and a 46, XY chromosome constitution. However, it may designate an instance of true hermaphroditism in which overt bodily characteristics are predominantly male hermaphroditism in which only testes are present.
