Children and Adolescents in the United States with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia are not at Increased Risk for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Harasymiw Lauren , Grosse Scott , Sarafoglou Kyriakie

Background: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a rare form of adrenal insufficiency characterized by impaired cortisol synthesis leading to excessive adrenal androgen production. Little is known regarding the effects of early and chronic androgen exposure in children with CAH, and whether this exposure may increase the risk of developing attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) during childhood. The only study on the subject, based on a small sampl...

Effect of Adjusting for Tanner Stage Age on Short and Tall Stature Prevalence in US Youths

Addo O Yaw , Sarafoglou Kyriakie , Miller Bradley

Background: Although differences in pubertal timing alters frequency of indicators of attained stature at the extremes, its magnitude is unknown across ethnic groups of US youths.Methods: We performed analyses of anthropometry and Tanner staging data of 3206 cross-sectional national sample of youths ages 8–18y (53% male (n=1606), 72% Non-Hispanic White (NHW), 9% Mexican American (MA) and 19% Non-Hispanic Black (NHB). Specialized Tanner-stag...

Case Series: Anastrozole Monotherapy for Non-Classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Sandy Liu , Malavika Suresh , Mutaz Jaber , Kyriakie Sarafoglou

Background: Non-classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia (NC-CAH) is caused by pathogenic variants of the CYP21A2 gene, and in most cases is not associated with cortisol deficiency as is the classic (severe) form. The majority of children with NC-CAH are asymptomatic and do not require cortisol replacement therapy with hydrocortisone unless they develop symptoms of hyperandrogenemia such as early pubarche, growth acceleration, advanced bone age, and ultimately s...

Reference Growth Charts in Children with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Sarafoglou Kyriakie , Miller Bradley , Munoz Yesica , Jaber Mu'taz , Yaw Addo O.

Introduction: Adult height in individuals with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is reduced compared to the general population as their growth during childhood can be negatively impacted by both the disease and its treatment. Excess production of androgens through aromatization to estrogens can accelerate height velocity and skeletal maturity, and lead to short stature if not adequately suppressed. Over suppression of adrenal steroids through excess glucoco...

Depression among insured children and young adults in the United States with congenital adrenal hyperplasia

Harasymiw Lauren , Grosse Scott , Cullen Kathryn , Bitsko Rebecca , Perou Ruth , Sarafoglou Kyriakie ,

Background: Individuals with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), a form of adrenal insufficiency, are exposed to daily non-physiologic, non-circadian cortisol profiles due to both the disease and therapeutic limitations. Dysfunction in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is strongly associated with depressive disorders. However, little is known about the prevalence of depression among children and young adults with CAH. We investigated the prevalence of ...
