Default Indirect / Direct Hernias

Just to make sure, a complete androgen insensitivity (CIAS, or testicular/feminization syndrome)

Associated with a Normal appearing female, presents with an Indirect Hernia?

I think wherever you got this may be referring to the undescended testes in complete androgen insensitivity which are often found in the inguinal area and can be confused with a hernia

These need to be removed to prevent testicular cancer

I think I got it.

If a patient presents with an Hernia before puberty you must suspect CAIS.
