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.

    In a rare case, a 65-year-old man who went to hospital with pain in lower abdomen was found to be carrying suspected female uterus inside his body.

    The man, father of three children, was admitted to Government District Hospital Baramulla, on Friday with lower abdomen pain. The female reproductive organ was found when the doctors decided to conduct a surgery.

    “He was attended by surgeons who diagnosed him with hernia. But when he was operated upon they found a well defined uterus with fallopian tubes,” Dr Masarat Iqbal Wani, deputy superintendent the hospital, told dna.

    Later, a team of three doctors conducted hysterectomy procedure to remove the female reproductive organs from the body of the man. “They look like well defined female reproductive organs. But to be sure we have sent the specimen for pathological tests,” Dr Masarat said.

    Doctors said the patient has fully developed male reproductive organs though he had a uterus inside his body. “Externally there were no female sexual organs like vagina. All the female reproductive organs were inside the body,” Dr Abdul Qayoom Shah, senior surgeon who led the team of doctors in the operation, told dna.

    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.

  7. Letter: How does “natural law” explain the hermaphrodite?
    First Published Jan 18 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Jan 18 2014 01:01 am
    I enjoyed Ken Thomas’ letter, "Natural law dictates 2-gender society" (Forum, Jan. 15). He tells us that "Natural Law runs its course perfectly ,.. never makes any mistakes."

    I wonder how Natural Law explains the hermaphrodite, the "person or animal with the sexual organs of both the male and the female" (Webster’s New World Dictionary).

    Natural Law never makes mistakes. If it "discriminates against two confused people of the same gender," how does Natural Law handle the hermaphrodite? I’m sure Mr. Thomas must know.

  9. Lawmaker's brother accused of killing
    Staff Correspondent
    A hermaphrodite died on Sunday, after brother of a lawmaker and his men had allegedly beaten the person up on suspicion of a mobile phone theft at Nabiganj upazila in Habiganj Saturday night.
    The deceased was identified as Ador Kha, 24, child of Daulat Kha of Jahurpur village in the upazila.
    The family of the deceased filed a murder case with Nabiganj Police Station against Belal Chowdhury, younger brother of lawmaker from Habiganj-1 Munim Chowdhury, and three to four unnamed others.
    Locals said Belal's mobile phone had been stolen from his business place Amin Decorators on Saturday night. Belal and his men captured Ador on suspicion of the theft and took Ador to the decorator office in Aushkandi Bazar around 11:00pm. There they tortured the hermaphrodite.
    At one point of the torture, Ador lost consciousness and was taken to a friend's house in nearby village of Durlavpur, they added.
    Informed, Ador's family members rushed their and brought Ador home in the small hours of Sunday. Ador breathed the last around 1:00pm that day.
    Ador's brother Dilu Kha, the complainant of the case, said that in critical condition, Ador had told him that Belal and three to four of his employees tortured Ador to make the hermaphrodite admit to the theft.
    "As Ador tried to run for life, they chased Ador down beat her up until midnight," said Dilu quoting Ador as saying.
    Belal told reporters that Ador had been beaten up by a mob for stealing the mobile phone. Later Ador was handed over to police. When police had taken Ador to look for the mobile phone, Ador fell sick and died, he added.
    Jahangir Alam, officer-in-charge of Nabiganj police, said Ador had been tortured for stealing. Later Ador fell sick and died, he added.
    Lawmaker Munim claimed that it was locals who had tortured Ador. "My brother was not involved in it," he said.
    Ador's body was sent to Habiganj Sadar Hospital for autopsy. The hermaphrodite was buried yesterday morning in their Jahurpur village.
    Meanwhile, the Hermaphrodite Samity yesterday staged demonstration on Dhaka-Sylhet highway protesting the brutal killing.
