Background: Ambiguous genitalia is an uncommon situation that happens between 1 and 2 per every 1000 live births and falls under the umbrella diagnosis of disorders of sexual development. Case: In this article, we report a case of male pseudohermaphroditism with ambiguous genitalia. The proband was a 12 yr old girl without any uterus or ovarian tissues. Karyotype of the case is 46, XY. Genes involved in sexual differentiation such as AR, SRD5A2, LH, LHR, FSH, 17 B HSD and SRY genes were sequenced in both directions. No mutations were found in these genes either. Conclusion: It seems advisable to be cautious in similar cases, and revise protocol for tracing the genes involved in the patients.
