66-year-old man in Hong Kong turned out to be a woman

BBCIn Hong Kong, a 66-year–old man who came for abdominal surgery discovered that he was a woman, reports Hong Kong Medical Journal.

The patient complained of an increase in the size of the abdomen. During the operation, it was discovered that he had an ovarian cyst.

The patient had two hereditary diseases. Firstly, he has Turner syndrome, in which women are born with only one X chromosome. Usually people with this syndrome look like women, but they are not able to conceive a child.

At the same time, the patient was also found to have congenital hyperplasia of the adrenal cortex, as a result of which his body produces more male hormones, and he looks like a man.

The patient is Chinese, originally from Vietnam, with a height of 1 meter 37 cm. He has a beard and a small penis.

After learning that he is biologically a woman, the patient decided to remain a man and intends to take additional male hormones.
