Abstract

Disorders of Sex Development (DSD) is discordance between gonadal, chromosomal and phenotypic sex . In low middle income countries like Pakistan, people with conditions of DSD face many problems due to stigmatization, low education level , less and misleading information and above all lack of access to medical facilities expert in dealing these issues. Rate of DSD is very high in our country due to consanguineous marriages as most of DSDs are autosomal recessive in origin. We have highlighted importance of support that these individuals need in form of social acceptance, access to medical need and psychological support .[ 1,2]
