Abstract


Teter and Boczkowski (1966) classified testicular feminization syndrome into two groups; One with no pubic hair and normal clitoris (A group) and the other with pubic hair and enlarged clitoris (B group). However, the patient discussed in this paper shows a mid-form of these two groups (C group). To find out differences among A, B and C groups, we have observed the micro-structure of testes removed from her inguinal canal and analyzed the chromosomes obtained from testicular and blood culture. Her seminiferous tubules show some differences in the maturation and distribution of Leydig and Sertoli cells and in the thickening of basement membrane as compared with group A and B. We suppose that such differences are responsible for the morphological changes of clitoris and pubic hair.
