The online version of the Journal of Pediatrics has provided full access to the article I previously mentioned that involves the sex reassignment of a biologically male child at:

scroll down to the title: 'Experiment of Nurture: Ablatio Penis at 2 Months, Sex Reassignment at 7 Months, and a Psychosexual Follow-up in Young Adulthood' by Susan J. Bradley, Gillian D. Oliver, Avinoam B. Chernick, and Kenneth J. Zucker.

It is worth noting that the research by Money extensively cited at the beginning of the article involved the first known instance of male reassignment to female after a circumcision accident, and much of the medical literature written on this person claiming success has since been negated by the patient's own decision to return to male status.
