Technology cannot replace clinical acumen. Think of complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) in a female child with inguinal hernia. Diagnosis was missed in our patient when she presented with inguinal hernia the first time. Karyotyping should be done. Sex of rearing in CAIS is female. Chances of tumor development in retained testis are low. Testis helps in development of female secondary sexual characters and avoids estrogen replacement therapy early in life. Gonadectomy is done in early adulthood.
