The final and most complex category is those who are of biologically confused gender. These people fall into two different groups, both of which are extremely rare. First, there are a number of chromosomal disorders and genetic abnormalities (such as Turner's and Klinefelter's syndromes, which both affect the development of the child's sexual characteristics). Second, some individuals are born with a hormone deficiency ('adrenogenital syndrome') which means that their sex is very difficult to determine on the basis of the appearance of their external genitals. If such deficiences are identified at an early stage, the child may have surgery or hormone treatments to establish the physical characteristics of their real gender in their body.
