Program for Pediatric Differences in Sex Development (DSD)

The terminology for DSDs is ever-changing. They are also called Disorders of Sex Development (medically) and intersex conditions. Some children are born with a DSD due to an unusual event during fetal sex development.

The DSD Program at Monroe Carell provides a specialized team approach to the complex needs of patients with DSDs. Our team consists of a social worker, nurses, coordinator and physicians.

We may see your child as early as the newborn period and require laboratory assessment and radiologic imaging studies. Treatment may include hormone therapy at certain times in your child’s life. Surgical treatment may be considered in these conditions.

Conditions We Treat

We treat all conditions related to differences in sex development, including:
