Congenital Disorders of the Reproductive Systems
In typical reproductive system development, recall that the intermediate mesoderm forms the mesonephric (Wolffian) and paramesonephric (Müllerian) ducts and the indifferent gonads; primitive germ cells migrate into the indifferent gonads. These are the structures that become the internal organs of the reproductive systems.
After listening to this AudioBrick, you should be able to:
- Describe the normal development of male and female reproductive systems.
- Compare and contrast anomalies of the uterus and vagina arising in the female reproductive system.
- Compare and contrast anomalies of the testes, scrotum, and penile urethra arising in the male reproductive system.
- Compare and contrast disorders of sexual development (DSD): ovotesticular DSD, 46 XX DSD, and 46 XY DSD.
