Intersex Syndrome is the intermingling of characteristics of both sexes in varying degrees in one individual, including physical form, reproductive organs and sexual behaviour. A twenty one year old person brought up as male presented to Dept. of Radio-Imaging, JIIU’s Indian Institute of Medical Science and Research, Warudi, Tq. Badnapur Dist. Jalna, Maharashtra with ambiguous external male genitalia. On external genital examination, rudimentary phalluses, small scrotum with impalpable testes were found. It was also found that Uterus and ovary like structure is seen in the pelvis posterior to urinary bladder and at the same time prostate like structure is seen posterior to urinary bladder. Above mention features suggested strong possibility of intersex syndrome. Ambiguous genitalia represents a true medical and social emergency which needs a multi-disciplinary team approach for elucidation.
