In this prospective study, we analyzed 30 male infants with increased neonatal 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17OH-P) (patients) and for comparison 52 age-matched healthy babies (control subjects) with the aim of investigating the hypothalamic-pituitary-testis axis in the first 6 months of life. Although T, FSH, and LH levels were not significantly different in patients and control subjects, inhibin B was higher in patients than in control subjects. Therefore we suggest a clinical follow-up of these babies during childhood and puberty to verify the evolution of their condition.
