AIM To evaluate height, bone growth, areal bone mineral density (aBMD), volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) and markers of bone turnover in a group of patients affected by congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). PATIENTS There were 50 patients (23 males, 27 females), aged 1-28 years, affected by CAH due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency: 27 with the salt-wasting (SW); 14 with the simple virilizing (SV), and 9 with the nonclassical (NC) forms. METHODS Bone morphometry was evaluated with the… CONTINUE READING
