  • 17-OHP neonatal screen
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia screening
  • Newborn congenital adrenal hyperplasia screening

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is a genetic disorder affecting hormone production by the adrenal glands. It often leads to imbalances in cortisol and aldosterone levels, causing symptoms like ambiguous genitalia in newborns. It can later result in various health issues, including abnormal sexual development, electrolyte imbalances, and potentially life-threatening adrenal crises.
