1/3. Laparoscopic bilateral orchiectomy for testicular feminization syndrome.

    A 13-year-old female patient with complete androgen insensitivity (testicular feminization syndrome) had an excision of bilateral intra-abdominal testicles via the laparoscopic approach. The patient had a very smooth, fast recovery from her surgery. The laparoscopic approach should be considered for most patients in need of surgical removal of undescended or intra-abdominal testes.

2/3. Pure seminoma arising in androgen insensitivity syndrome (testicular feminization syndrome): a case report and review of the literature.

    This is a case of a young woman who had testicular feminization syndrome and developed a seminoma in an undescended intrapelvic testis. Androgen insensitivity (testicular feminization) syndrome is a rare inherited form of male pseudohermaphroditism that occurs in phenotypically normal women with adequate breast development, normal external genitalia, a vagina of variable depth, absent uterus, and sparse or absent pubic and axillary hair. The gonad (undescended testes) may be intraabdominal, inguinal, or labial. These patients characteristically have male karyotype (XY) and negative sex chromatin and are at increased risk of undergoing malignant transformation of the undescended gonad. We review the literature emphasizing the biochemical and endocrinologic abnormalities leading to the syndrome, as well as the morphologic abnormalities (light microscopic) of the undescended testes, diagnosis, and therapeutic management.

3/3. Testicular feminization: radiologic considerations in a unique form of cryptorchidism.

    A case report of complete testicular feminization is presented. The medical and radiological characteristics of this condition which distinguish it from male cryptorchidism and other disorders of sexual differentiation are discussed. To our knowledge, only three previous case reports have been published in the radiology literature. Our report is the first to describe MRI findings.
