Abstract

Congenital adrenal hypoplasia has been estimated to occur in approximately 1 of 12,500 births. Hyperpigmentation associated with this condition typically appears gradually during a period of months to years. We describe a newborn infant with profound hyperpigmentation in whom adrenal crisis subsequently developed as a result of congenital adrenal hypoplasia.
