Résumé / Abstract

This article makes a contribution to recent medical historiography on the subject of the historical category of sex. By means of a detailed study of medical accounts published in Spain between 1860 and 1925 we analyse knowledge on the question of the identification of sex, male or female, with reference to the borderline category of «hermaphroditism». The technologies utilised by medico-legal sources to determine sex and the complex network of elements involved in establishing the biological dichotomy between men and women are prominent in our discussion.
