A 46XY individual with incomplete male pseudohermaphroditism was studied. The phenotype was distinctive, with a masculine habitus despite a small phallus, gynaecomastia and diminished virilization. Plasma levels of testosterone, oestrogens, gonadotrophins and sex-hormone binding globulin were elevated. It is proposed that this syndrome is a variant of Type I incomplete male pseudohermaphroditism.
