The article discusses a study conducted by Ameli Norling and colleagues on CBX2 gene mutation or gene copy number alterations induced gonadal disorder in women. The study involves 35 patients with gonadal disorders of sexual development (DSD) who are referred to hospital for routine analysis. The results reveals that CBX gene is not a common cause of gonadal DSD.
