Classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency is rare, occurring approximately once in every 15 000 live births. At birth it is often suspected in girls because of ambiguous genitalia, whereas boys have normal genitalia. The salt-losing type of CAH presents with adrenal crisis a few weeks after birth, while the simple type manifests virilisation and rapid growth years later.
