New clinic addresses intersex and gender issues - for children

On February 23, a new multidisciplinary clinic at Children's Hospital Boston's saw its first patients with what are called disorders of sexual differentiation (DSD). The program primarily serves infants, children, adolescents and young adults with genitourinary or hormonal disorders or other medical issues that may make it difficult to
determine their sex, and that may interfere with sexual and
reproductive function.

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis.
