After reviewing the causes of virilization in the newborn and grown female child, the Authors describe a case of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (S.A.G.C.) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency in a newborn and a case of virilizing adrenal tumor in a four and half years old female child. The diagnostic and therapeutical approach of these unhealthy forms is argued and, on the ground of the personal observation and literature data, the frequent incidence of virilizing adrenocortical tumors within the same family is remarked and underlined.
