      The gonadal phenotype of ipsilateral intra-abdominal testis and contralateral rudimentary streak gonad is invariably associated with masculinizing signs, short stature, and a mosaic 45,X/46,XY karyotype. A 16-year-old female with asymmetric gonadal dysgenesis without clinical or biochemical evidence of androgen overproduction, and a 46,XY karyotype, is presented.
