Abstract

The diagnosis of androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) can now be made prenatally. We present a patient for whom the diagnosis of AIS was highly suspected prenatally, but the parents preferred to deny it. The clinical findings and the diagnostic evaluation after delivery are presented. A brief discussion of the syndrome, as well as the implications of possible prenatal diagnosis and how to approach it, are provided. Full multidisciplinary diagnostic work-up immediately after delivery, as well as awareness of possible prenatal diagnosis, is the responsibility of the primary care provider for the newborn with suspected AIS.
