Background: Standard glucocorticoid therapy in CAH often fails to control androgen excess, causing glucocorticoid overexposure and poor health outcomes, particularly in adolescents. Efmody, a MRHC, has recently been licensed for CAH patients aged >12 years following a phase 3 study by Merke et al., 2021 demonstrating improved biochemical control in adults, steroid dose reduction over time, and patient-reported benefit.<stron...

During her admission, she had recurrent episodes of clinically suspected NEC which were medically managed. Her feeds were discontinued on numerous occasions due to bilious aspirates, vomiting and abdominal distention. Given the patient’s clinical condition, a contrast study of the gastrointestinal tract was done using an enteral iodina...

Shirodkar Diksha , Baioumi Alaa , Giri Dinesh , Candler Toby , Burren Christine , Hamblin Rachel , Alderson Julie , Crowne Elizabeth

Introduction: DSD includes variations in the development of chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomical sex and can be subdivided into (XY DSD, XX DSD, and sex chromosomal DSD). Most presentations occur in the neonatal period with atypical genitalia or discordant phenotype and antenatal genotype, but later presentations occur raising complex diagnostic and clinical management issues.Objective: To characterise the etiological, cl...
