Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia - Complications
Prolonged steroid therapy reduces bone mineral density. The problem is not high if physiological replacement dose is administered. Age appropriate Vitamin D and Calcium intake should be ensured in all children on treatment. Some children are prone for adrenal rest tumors. They are bilateral and are > 2cm in diameter, hence not palpable. They are benign and related to sub optimal therapy. They decrease in size after receiving optimal treatment. Irregular menstrual cycles are common in adolescents.
