The author comments on the study "Polycystic Ovaries and Adrenal Insufficiency in a Young Pubescent Female with Lipoid Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) due to Splice Mutation of teh StAR Gene: A Case Report & Review of the Literature," published within the issue. He considers the recommendations for nonclassical or simple CAH cases as well as the challenges. The author states that softening strict control guidelines of CAH during puberty could lead to the danger of maximum growth.
