Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is a rare condition that affects how the adrenal glands produce hormones. The condition affects boys and girls equally and can lead to a variety of symptoms that require expert medical care from multiple pediatric specialists.
Riley at IU Health provides comprehensive care for this condition through the Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) Program. Riley offers all the care your child needs in one location, allowing your child’s doctors to collaborate seamlessly. Our expert pediatric urologists and pediatric endocrinologists work together to identify and treat CAH using the latest medical and surgical techniques.
Surgeons at Riley at IU Health are leaders in the surgical care of girls with CAH. Our surgeons developed new techniques to repair genital anomalies that have now become the international standard of care. We also strive to stay on the forefront of research to ensure our patients have the best outcomes possible.
Riley at IU Health doctors have received national recognition for high-quality care of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Riley has been designated a comprehensive care center (CCC) for patients with CAH by the CARES Foundation, the premier organization for CAH education, research and support. It is one of four designated centers in the country and the only one located in the Midwest.

This is a Phase 2* study to determine dose levels and the safety of a new add-on drug (NBI-74788) for classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). This medicine is an extra medication for patients with CAH, so patients who participate in the study will continue their maintenance glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid doses during the study. We are signing up male and female patients who are 18 to 50 years old and who have classic (21-hydroxylase deficiency) CAH. Each dose is given for 14 days in a row.
*Phase 2 clinical studies determine whether a new treatment is effective after a Phase 1 study determined it is safe.
