Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)

What is congenital adrenal hyperplasia?

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a congenital condition. CAH leads to problems with hormone production in the adrenal cortex. This causes the production of excess androgens (sex hormones), usually too little cortisol and sometimes too little aldosterone. CAH is also called adrenogenital syndrome.
