Patients with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia due to partial deficiency in the enzyme 21-hydroxlyase can present in childhood or adolescence with signs of adrenal androgen excess. Strategies to reduce the impact of androgen excess in females include cosmetic measures as well as an anti-androgens and agents such as the combined oral contraceptive pill. Glucocorticoid (GC) may not be appropriate straightaway but can be introduced if other measures are ineffective or when pregnancy is planned. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
