CONTEXT In male patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), testicular adrenal rest tumors (TART) are frequently present. These tumors can interfere with testicular function. Intensifying glucocorticoid therapy does not always lead to tumor regression and improvement of testicular function. Recently, testis-sparing surgery was introduced for treatment of TART. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate tumor volume, symptoms, and pituitary-gonadal function in male patients with… CONTINUE READING
