Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is an inherited medical condition in which the adrenal glands do not function properly. There are several forms of CAH, all caused by different enzyme deficiencies which result in underproduction and overproduction of various hormones. Patients may not produce enough cortisol or blood sugar, or may produce high levels of androgens including testosterone.
