Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of genetic conditions that adversely affect the adrenal glands, resulting in reduced cortisol synthesis and elevated androgen levels. Unfortunately, many children and adults with CAH commonly experience undesired adverse effects from current glucocorticoid treatments. Emerging treatments are being evaluated for their potential to reduce the burden of glucocorticoid dosing that could greatly improve care and quality of life for patients with CAH. Please join our experts in this live 90-minute symposium where they will discuss screening and diagnosis of CAH, including challenges with current glucocorticoid treatment, emerging CAH treatments, and strategies for management of CAH within a comprehensive care team environment.

  • Endocrinologists
  • Primary care physicians (PCPs)
  • Nurse practitioners (NPs)
  • Physician assistants (PAs)
  • Pediatricians
Other clinicians who treat patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)
  • Upon completion of this activity, learners will have:

    • Increased knowledge regarding the
      • Clinical presentation and diagnosis of CAH
      • Treatment strategies for classic CAH
      • Clinical data/MOA of emerging treatments for CAH
    • Greater confidence in their ability to implement currently available strategies for management of CAH within a comprehensive care team environment
