Abstract: HII galaxies are objects nowadays in the eye of the hurricane mostly due to the questions still open about their evolutionary status. This work is a continuation of a study of the chemical properties and ionization structure of a set of 12 HII galaxies observed in the optical and near IR part of the spectrum. In the present work we make use of the Wolf-Rayet features observed in a subsample of seven of them and apply photoionization models to derive the properties of the massive ionizing star clusters – age, mass, metallicity, etc. – and check on the consistency with the gas properties derived in our previous work.
