Two of nine sisters from Gujrat were turned boys after going through sex reassignment procedure at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad. Sex-change is considered a taboo in Pakistan, however, on the appearance of natural signs of the opposite gender, doctors do perform such procedures. The girls, aged 13 and 15, were brought from Gujrat due to their unusual physical constitution.
Professor Dr. Amjad Chaudhry at PIMS said the physical characteristics of the two sisters were unusual. He added a medical examination had found that they suffered from atypical genitalia conditions. It should be noted that in this condition, the genitals are not clear and the boy and girl cannot be determined.
