Bilateral laparoscopic gonadectomy in a patient with complete androgen insensitivity. A case report.
J Reprod Med. 1996 Apr; 41(4):270-2.JR

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Complete androgen insensitivity (CAI) is the most common cause of male pseudohermaphroditism. Affected individuals are advised to have bilateral gonadectomies to prevent the development of germ cell tumors.

CASE

A 19-year-old phenotypic female presented for the evaluation of primary amenorrhea and was diagnosed with CAI. Operative videolaparoscopy was performed, and the intraabdominal gonads were resected; the patient was discharged in < 24 hours.

CONCLUSION

Laparoscopic gonadectomy can be performed in individuals with CAI. This approach eliminates the need for laparotomy and results in rapid recovery with minimal blood loss. This approach should be considered for all patients with CAI and intraabdominal gonads.
