A 65 Year Old Hermaphrodite

A 65 year old man had his uterus unknowingly removed by a doctor. The father of three children was recently admitted to the Government District Hospital Baramulla in India with lower abdominal pains. After doctors agreed to perform surgery, they discovered a full uterus with fallopian tubes. Three doctors performed the removal unknowingly to the patient.

According to online reports:

Doctors are suspecting that the patient might be a hermaphrodite (a person who has both male and female sex organs, and other sexual characteristics, either abnormally or as the natural condition). “We did not tell him about this problem given the social stigma and psychological trauma associated with such things,” said Dr Shah. Doctors said it is for the first time in Kashmir’s history that a man who fathered three children was diagnosed and operated upon for such a unique medical problem. “Around eight years ago, I saw a 14-year-old boy with female organs inside but did not remove it. I only removed the hernia and did not take the chance,”. I told him to come for a follow up but he did not,” said Dr Shah.
