In brief: Classic or non?

Classic cah is diagnosed mostly on newborn screening.
It results from a block in the synthesis of cortisol and usually also aldosterone. Females will often have ambiguous genitalia. Males don't look different. Permanent replacement with Hydrocortisone & Fludrocortisone (may not need past childhood) are needed for sustaining life and salt balance. Pediatric endocrinologists follow very closely.
