Background: The differential diagnosis of the polyuria-polydipsia syndrome is challenging. The water-deprivation test is the current gold standard, but the test is cumbersome, and the diagnostic performance is poor. Copeptin, which is a split product of the vasopressin pre-propeptide, appears to be a robust biomarker in the circulation and a promising tool for the diagnosis of patients with polyuria and polydipsia, especially when measured in conjunction with intravenous infus...

Background: Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) requires exogenous steroid replacement and can be monitored with 17-OH Progesterone and Androstenedione. We reviewed real world data to evaluate these markers in relation to hydrocortisone dose in patients treated in 21 centres throughout 14 countries.Method: Retrospective cohort study using pseudonymised data from patients with 21α-Hydroxylase Deficiency recorded in the International Congenital Adren...

Background: Testicular Adrenal Rest Tumors (TART) in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) or 11-hydroxylase deficiency (11OHD) are benign lesions causing testicular damage and infertility. We hypothesize that high ACTH exposure due to poor hormonal control during early life is promoting development of TART later in life.Objective: This study aims to examine the relation between early CAH diagnosis and cons...

Introduction: There is no unified approach in clinical practice regarding the medical management of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), despite existent international guidance. We aimed to explore geographical and temporal variations in the treatment with glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids of patients with CAH.Methods: We collected data recorded by 33 centres from 16 countries in the I-CAH Registry. We analysed patient visits between 1982 and 2018,...

Background: The reported occurrence and management of acute adrenal insufficiency–related adverse events in children vary widely between centres and may depend on available resources.Methods: Real world data from the I-CAH Registry from 44 centres [32 from high income (HIC) and 12 from low/middle income (LMIC) countries] and a total number of 607 children were linked to the results of a health care survey of local r...
