In brief: It varies

Persons with the most common form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (cah) have a predisposition to make extra testosterone.
For girls can manifest as genitalia that is "masculinized" before birth and therefore "ambiguous" at birth. Some girls can also have "salt wasting". Girls can also have somewhat masculinized behaviors. Testosterone levels can be lowered by therapy. www.caresfoundation.org.
