A thirty-year-old Indian woman who has lived nine years of marriage has been found to have a rare genetic disease and a male XY sex chromosome set.
It is noted that the patient, who went to the doctors with abdominal pain, suffers from Morris syndrome. People with this disease look like women, but genetically are men.
Judging by her appearance, this is a woman. Starting from the voice, developed breast, normal external genital organs, RIA Novosti oncologist Anupam Datt quotes RIA Novosti.
According to him, the testes did not synthesize testosterone, as they remained undeveloped inside the body, which is why female sex hormones formed the patient’s appearance. Moreover, the patient lacked a uterus and ovaries, never had menstruation, so attempts to conceive a child were unsuccessful.
As for abdominal pain, they turned out to be a symptom of cancer. The patient is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
As NEWS.ru wrote earlier, the birth rate is falling in Russia and the natural population decline is growing. The situation is affected by various factors, among which – economic stagnation, falling oil prices and the entry into the reproductive age of youth not ready for childbirth. At the same time, the coronavirus pandemic critically affects the economy: in a crisis, residents lose their jobs and incomes. All this can lead to the fact that the country will plunge into a demographic storm, and the birth rate will fall below the 1990s, experts say.
