Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To present a patient with androgen insensitivity syndrome with serous gonadal cyst who underwent laparoscopic surgery.

DESIGN:

Case report.

SETTING:

University hospital.

PATIENT(S):

An 18-year-old female with a history of primary amenorrhea.

INTERVENTION(S):

Laparoscopic gonadectomy.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):

Diagnosis and surgical approach to gonadal cyst.

RESULT(S):

Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging revealed the presence of a 4-cm cystic smooth mass close to the right external iliac vein and artery. We performed laparoscopic bilateral gonadectomy. The pathological findings suggested that the serous gonadal cyst was formed by occlusion of the glandular duct in the right gonad.

CONCLUSION(S):

We reported a case of laparoscopic gonadectomy for cystic mass in the gonad of a patient with androgen insensitivity syndrome.
