Age, insurance status related to hospitalization for children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia

February 17, 2017

Among children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, those who are younger and those with government insurance may be at increased risk for hospitalization, recent data indicate.

Perrin C. White, MD, professor of pediatrics, and Ming Yang, PhD, associate professor, both in the department of pediatrics at UT Southwestern Medical Center, evaluated medical records from Children’s Medical Center Dallas from 1999 to 2013 and identified 522 children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) to determine risk factors for postdiagnosis hospitalization. Overall, 155 participants had salt-wasting disease, and 55 participants were hospitalized 105 times.
