Cross-species summary: This phene includes information relating to differences of sexual development (DSD) in animals of unknown karyotype and for which causal variants have so far not been identified. References relating to reviews or reports of multiple different types of DSD are also included. See other information relating to DSD in 'OMIA:002776 : Sex chromosome difference of sexual development, generic; OMIA:000901 : XX difference of sexual development; OMIA:001601 : XY difference of sexual development, generic' as well as specific gene-related entries or by searching for DSD. Renamed from 'Intersex' and merged with 'OMIA:000900 Sex reversal generic' [29/09/2023]

Species-specific description: For information relating to the polled intersex syndrome (PIS) see also OMIA:000483-9925 : Polled/Horns in Capra hircus and OMIA:000901-9925 : XX difference of sexual development, generic in Capra hircus.
