A spontaneous case of true lateral hermaphroditism was observed in one of approximately 1000 necropsies of 12-wk-old female C3Hf-Wg mice (a substrain of C3H/He). Both the right ovary and abdominal left testis were functional as evidenced by the presence of oocytes in graffian follicles and spermatocytes maturing on sertoli cells. Both gonads communicated, the ovary via an oviduct and normal right uterine horn and the testis via an epididymus and vas deferens, with a vagina which ended in a blind pouch and was filled with squamous debris.
