Understanding Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of inherited disorders that affect the adrenal glands. The condition leads to the production of an imbalance of hormones, such as cortisol, aldosterone, and androgens. This hormonal imbalance can have a significant impact on growth, development, and sexual differentiation. 

The adrenal glands are responsible for producing hormones that regulate various body functions. In CAH, a genetic defect impairs the glands' ability to create these hormones properly, leading to an excess production of androgens (male sex hormones). 

The exact mutations causing CAH are inherited from both parents and can vary in severity, often correlating with the level of hormone imbalance.
