The Pediatric Adrenal Steroid Disorders Faculty Practice Associates at the Icahn School of Medicine studies and treats a variety of disorders resulting from the disruption of adrenal steroid metabolism, including congenital adrenal hyperplasia, several types of low-renin hypertension, and intersex conditions.
