Adrenal hypoplasia, congenital
A disorder of adrenal gland development characterized by absence of the permanent zone of the adrenal cortex, structural disorganization of the adrenal glands, adrenal insufficiency and profound hormonal deficiencies. AHC patients manifest primary adrenal failure usually in early infancy, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism leading to absent or incomplete sexual maturation. AHC can be inherited in an X-linked or autosomal recessive pattern.
