The proposed algorithm refers to and amends DSD
methods and includes eight major steps described as follows.
The 46, XX DSD
is usually caused by 21- or 11-hydroxylase deficiency or congenital adrenal hyperplasia; the 46, XY DSD
is often attributed to the secretion of androgen and abnormalities in metabolism and/or receptors.

Histopathology: At times biopsy of the genital skin for mosaicism and 5[alpha]-reductase activity and gonadal biopsy may be required in cases of mixed gonadal dygenisis or ovotesticular DSD
Among 300 cases, 46, XX DSD
were 54.3% (n=163), 46, XY DSD
were 43.7% (n=131), and sex chromosomal DSD
, 2% (n=6).
In total 121 patients were evaluated at monthly meetings of the DSD
council during the study period.
At present, USP is available in only a few reference centers and this limits the use of USP in routine DSD
They claimed there was no CCTV at the police station where Worboys dropped off DSD
and said there was no trace of any drugs in her system when tests showed the opposite.
Results: Out of 151 patients of XY DSD
, 68 (45%) patients were diagnosed as partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PIAS), 18 (12%) as isolated micropenis, 25 (16.6%) as partial gonadal dysgenesis, 12 (7.9%) as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, 11 (7.2%) as primary hypogonadism, 13 (8.6%) as complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) and 4 (2.6%) as 5[alpha] reductase deficiency.
The choice of bin size classes may influence the shape of the DSD
fundamentally; a too large bin size may ignore certain small sizes of drops, resulting in that the measured DSD
would not represent the underlying DSD
; and the bin size cannot be small infinitely because of the limitation of the instrument's resolution.
Last month in Manila, the four members of the DSD
, or the 'Quad' - the United States, Japan, Australia and India - met on the sidelines of the Asean Summit.
Linde's new DSD
400 metering system and process is said to provide precise amounts of liquid C[O.sub.2] or gaseous [N.sub.2] to the extrusion process to help optimize foaming and reduce density with its high-performance compressor, mass-flow meters, and dynamic control valve.
