While rare, adrenal disorders, including under- and overactive adrenal glands and tumors, do occur in children. 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.

Our goal is to provide those children with such disorders the most advanced treatments available and to supply the support and guidance needed by each patient and his-or-her family.
