In brief: Adrenal hyperplasia

The commonest type of congenital adrenal hyperplasia is caused by deficiency of 21 hydroxylase, classical type presents at birth, but non classical may present later in early childhood or during puberty.
It is difficult to answer all about it, but some salt depleted patients need to be on steroids and the patints need to be monotored for other defects, it should be trated by a pediatric endocrinologist.
