As for any other pathology, clinicians
should consider follow-up histopathological
examination of abnormal reproductive tissue
collected by routine neutering since these
cases do not occur very often in veterinary
medicine. Although there is little clinical effect
on the patient once both gonads have been
removed, histopathology or karyotyping may
provide valuable information for the breeder
and the clinician. It is important to understand
the development pathways that are involved in
cases such as these, in order to assess all of
the anatomic structures that might be found
during routine surgery. Diagnosis of intersex
disorders ensures the removal of internal
testes, and consequently mitigates the risk of
