Mixed gonadal dysgenesis (MGD) is a rare disorder of sexual development (DSD). A seven-year-old child with vagina and an elongated clitoris looking like a penile part of male external genitalia, presented in the Paediatric Surgery Department. Ultrasound of pelvis revealed a streak ovary on the right side and ovotestis on the left side. Uterus was not visualized. Karyotyping revealed 46, XY/45, XO genotype. Laparoscopic gonadectomy with vaginoplasty and the clitoral reduction was performed. A thorough histopathological examination of the specimen revealed structure of ovotestis-consisting of the ovary with Graafian follicles, fallopian tube, infantile testis with Leydig and Sertoli cells, epididymis, vas deference, and pampiniform plexus. Presence of Graafian follicle in the ovary, Leydig and Sertoli cells in the testis, at this age makes this case extremely interesting. The child was rehabilitated to lead her life as a girl.
