Background: Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH), is a group of autosomal recessive disorders resulting from the deficiency of one of the enzymes required to synthesis cortisol, and hence, increased production of adrenocorticotropin releasing home (ACTH) which leads to adrenal hyperplasia. Design and Setting: A retrospective, hospital based study were conducted at King Khalid University Hospital (KKUH), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during the period January 1989 and December 2014. Patients and Methods… CONTINUE READING
