Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is an inherited disorder of the adrenal glands. Its effects can be wide-ranging and serious—from problems of ambiguous genitalia in baby girls; to problems with growth and physical development; to problems with infertility and hormone imbalance. When undiagnosed and untreated, CAH can also be life threatening.

  Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia: A Parents’ Guide takes a nuts-and-bolts look at CAH—what this condition is, how it is inherited, and how it is treated and monitored. This new book on CAH written for a lay audience will be welcomed by all patients and parents who, until now, have had few places to turn for in-depth information.

 “As parents you will find this book understandable, complete, and comforting in its upbeat approach. Any pediatrician caring for a CAH child will also be well advised to obtain a copy. I wish I had had one sooner.”

—Dr. John D. Crawford, Emeritus Professor, Harvard Medical School
