A 32 years old patient with sexual ambiguity without any follow-up or surgery is presented. The patient is identified as male gender, has hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism, and a 45,X/46,XY mosaicism was found in the karyotype. A mixed gonadal dysgenesis was diagnosed. This paper discusses the appropriate multidisciplinary approach and management to avoid complications. Also, this paper emphasizes the importance of the patient’s autonomy and the individualization of the treatment.
