Abstract

Moderate forms of 21-hydroxylase deficiency (D21OH-NC), the so-called non-classical or late-onset forms are a frequently reported cause of hyperandrogenism in women [1-5]. The purpose of this collective and synthetic work was to provide the endocrinologist, gynecologist and dermatologist with consensual information so as to detect the maximum cases with acceptable cost-benefit ratio and to define the main lines of optimal patient management, given the data currently available in medical literature.
