We present 2 patients found to have ovotesticular disorder of sexual development (otDSD) in late adolescence. Two 15-year-old phenotypically male patients presented to a large pediatric hospital with different complaints: 1 with concern for testicular rupture after a straddle injury; 1 with gynecomastia. Further workup, including imaging and laboratory tests, was performed before surgical exploration. The first patient had unilateral ovotestis, contralateral testis, and SRY-negative 46,XX karyotype. The second patient with gynecomastia had unilateral ovotestis with hemi-uterus and fallopian tube, contralateral ovarian tissue, and 46,XX/47,XXY Klinefelter mosaic karyotype. Although rare, phenotypically normal male patients may present later with ovotesticular disorder of sexual development.
