Ankeet Patel 55 Northgate Blvd Brampton, ON L6S 4G7 905-457-8818 February 15/2013 Ms. Beatrice Smith 10 North Park Drive Brampton, ON L6S3M1 Dear Ms. Smith I understand that you are extremely upset and are worried, but I assure you there is a logical explanation for why you have an X and a Y chromosome. Even though your karyotype test revealed that you have XY chromosomes, your phenotype is still female. You suffer from a syndrome known as CAIS, Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. CAIS is when you do not have functioning androgen receptors. The receptors will act as if there was not any testosterone present so the development of a fetus continues as if the person was a female. Also, you have XY chromosomes because you have an SRY gene. An SRY gene is responsible for triggering the undifferentiated embryo into starting the process of becoming male. An SRY gene produces male hormones. Because you have an SRY gene, it means that you are male. Initially, the SRY gene starts to work by developing male genitals, but since u have CAIS; the androgen receptors stop working preventing the development of male genitals, causing you to display female genitals. This causes you to have female body parts on the outside but a male reproductive system on the inside. I would advise you to have surgery to remove the gonads from inside your body. By keeping the gonads in your body, you are placing yourself at risk of developing a tumor. You can also attend counselling or therapy to help deal with CAIS. I hope that I have helped you with this letter and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write me back or give me a call. Yours truly, Ankeet
