The following should be of use:-

Judith Butler, Gender Trouble, Routledge, 1990 (discussion of Foucault's
Alice Domurat Dreger, Hermaphrodites and the Medical Invention of Sex,
Harvard UP, 1998 (stuff on Barbin, and Foucault)
Michel Foucault, Les Anormaux, Gallimard/La Seuil, 1999 (discussion of a
number of related cases, some more specifics, etc.)

There was an interview originally conducted in Italian concerning Barbin,
see Dits et ecrits, vol III, p. 624 (don't have the full reference with me)

I've written an extended review article of Les Anormaux, "The Constitution
of the Normal", in boundary 2, Vol 28 No 1, Spring 2001; and have co-written
a piece entitled "Word, Desires and Ideas: Freud, Foucault and the
Hermaphroditic Roots of Bisexuality", which is just about to be submitted to
Body and Society.

Hope this is useful
