Disorders of Sex Development (DSD), previously known as intersex, refer to congenital conditions in which development of chromosomal, gonadal or anatomical sex is atypical. Patients with specific variants of this disorder have an elevated risk for the development of so called Type II Germ Cell Tumors i.e Seminomatous and Non-Seminomatous tumors, referred to as germ cell tumors, especially in patients with DSD and Gonadal Dysgenesis or Hypovirilization are at risk. In this article we present one such rare case of germ cell tumor in a patient presented with DSD to our department. This article also discusses the literature review on DSD and the risk of gonadal malignancy.
