Special Needs Guide
Ambiguous Genitalia: €Ambiguous genitalia is a condition when the sex of a baby is uncertain at birth because genitals may not appear clearly male or female. Development of the sex organs is a four step process in the growing fetus. Problems may arise at any of the four steps causing malformations or incomplete growth. Males may have a very concealed, small or absent penis. The penis may also be “split open” as in hypospadias and difficult to recognize. The testes may be hidden in the abdomen or undeveloped. The testes may look like female labia. Females may have enlarged clitoral tissue that resembles a small penis. Their labia might be closed and resemble a boy’s scrotum.
