Abstract

A three-year-old female undergoes elective inguinal hernia repair and unexpectedly is found to have testes in the hernia sacs. A recommendation is made not to disclose the patient's genotype to her mother. This case study addresses the ethical conflict of whether to disclose the patient's male genotype to the parent that has been raising the child as female.
