Graham-Little-Piccardi-Lassueur syndrome associated with androgen insensitivity syndrome (testicular feminization).
More specifically, examples of DSD include 46,XX individuals with CAH (females with genital masculinization); 46,XY androgen insensitivity syndrome (males with genital feminization and inability to respond to testosterone); and 46,XY 5-alphareductase deficiency (males with testes and male-typical testosterone levels with genital feminization that masculinizes during puberty often with an inadequate phallus).
