PMID:  22180995     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
AIM: Our objective was to show the way the classic CAH presents after birth as a severe condition and develops to the adult life, effecting growth, height and weight, appearance, fertility, relationships and quality of life.
CASE: We report the case of a 23-years-old female with the classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) from birth, diagnosed due to genital pigmentation, clitoromegaly and salt-wasting crisis, treated with glucocorticoid replacement (hydrocortisone, fludrocortisone and NaCI), followed by genital surgery, until the adult life when she continues treatment with fludrocortisone and prednisolone.
CONCLUSION: A treatment challenge is to effectively control the excess androgen symptoms by using the lowest possible glucocorticoid dose. Patients well-being can be accomplished by team work, adapted therapy, continues follow-up and patient's compliance (Ref. 15).
