Also known as Guevedoce.

The result of a lack of 5-alpha-reductase production during gestation and childhood, this deficiency is a form of being intersexed (or, to be somewhat archaic, a form of pseudohermaphrodism). 5-alpha-reductase is necessary for the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone.

5-alpha-reductase deficiency was studied by Julianne Imperato-McGinley in the Dominican Republic (where it is usually found).
