Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia: A Possible Risk Factor for Neonatal Adrenal Hemorrhage

Abstract


Here, we describe the first case of neonatal adrenal hemorrhage (AH) complicated with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Our findings suggest that adrenal glands that have enlarged due to CAH are more susceptible to hemorrhaging during labor, and therefore, that CAH could be a risk factor for AH.
