The management of CAH remains difficult despite international guidelines and consensus, and clinical practice varies substantially throughout the world. This project aims to identify the differences in clinical practice in the management of infants with 21-hydroxylase deficiency CAH and also explore the trends in the demographics of these infants. This would enable us to develop standards of early care and improve the outcomes of patients with this condition.
We aim to use data from the I-CAH Registry to investigate the variation in clinical management in infants with 21-hydroxylase deficiency CAH in the first 3 months of life. These data will provide us with the resources to create benchmarks and develop standards of care for the early management of these infants.

The activities of the I-DSD/I-CAH/I-TS Registries are overseen by the joint I-DSD/CAH/I-TS Steering Committee. New studies and projects and requests for data are reviewed by the Data Access Committee which reports to the Steering Committee. Care Quality Improvement (CQI) Projects such as this one are also approved and overseen by the I-DSD CQI committee. Day to day management of the registries is undertaken by the Project Management Group. For further details visit https://home.i-dsd.org/governance/
