Red List (low evidence)

Rarely presents with classic adrenal inusufficiency. Associated with salt retention and ultimately hypertension rather than salt loss. Affects sex steroid production in both sexes. Should be diagnosable on biochemistry but could potentially get confused with adrenal hypoplasia if limited assessment undertaken.
