We reported (Pediatrics, 23:727, 1959) a male infant with congenital adrenal hyperplasia complicated by marked polycythemia during the newborn period. This child died at 29 months of age. The purpose of this communication is to relate his further course and the necropsy findings.
He was admitted to the hospital at 1 day of age to be investigated for adrenal hyperplasia, as his sibling was known to have this disease. The diagnosis was confirmed by finding an increased 24-hour urinary excretion of 17-ketosteroids.
