Disorders of sex development (DSDs) were defined as “congenital conditions within which the development of chromosomal, gonadal and anatomic sex is atypical” at the Chicago Consensus Meeting in 2005 and then published as a Consensus Statement in 2006 [1-3]. However, there have been and there are many controversies, both because of the negative connotations perceived by organizations and professionals when using terms such as “disorders” (perhaps because of the perceived implications that “sex” involves sexual behavior), or because some health professionals have considered certain terms such as “intersex”, “pseudo hermaphroditism”, “hermaphroditism”, “sex reversal”, etc. inaccurate, non-descriptive, and confusing, or because among families and patient support groups they were felt to be pejorative. Other authors [4,5].
