How is 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency inherited?
Females with the non-classic form of 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency have normal female genitalia. As affected females get older, they may develop excessive body hair growth and irregular menstruation. Males with the non-classic form do not typically have any signs or symptoms except for short stature. High blood pressure is not a feature of the non-classic form.
