In brief: Its possible

Genitalia development depends on the chromosomes and exposure to testosterone.
There is a sequence of events starting with the internal genitalia (ovaries, tubes, testes) that ultimately play a role in the development of the external genitalia (outer vagina or penis). A female could have an enlarged clitoris that looks like a penis. Others could have part ovary and testis.
