Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH)

CAH refers to a group of genetic disorders that affect the adrenal glands. These glands sit on top of the kidneys and release hormones the body needs to function. CAH creates imbalances in these hormones, which cause a wide range of symptoms in infants, children, and adults.

NICHD research aims to find new ways to diagnose and treat the disorder, as well as to help health care providers and scientists better understand how it develops.
