The different grade of genital ambiguity is commonly measured by the Prader classification , [6] which ranges, in ascending order of masculinisation, from 1 : female external genitalia with clitoromegaly through 5 : pseudo-phallus looking like normal male external genitalia. Clitoromegaly is a rare condition and can be either present by birth or acquired later in life. If present at birth, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be one of the causes, since in this condition the adrenal gland of the female fetus produces additional androgens and the newborn baby has ambiguous genitalia which are not clearly male or female. In pregnant women who received norethisterone during pregnancy, masculinization of the fetus occurs, resulting in hypertrophy of the clitoris; [8] however, this is rarely seen nowadays due to use of safer progestogens. It can also be caused by the autosomal recessive congenital disorder known as Fraser syndrome.
