Abstract

The lifetime risk for adrenal insufficiency in male children with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is estimated at 80%-86%. Prior to newborn screening, male children with ALD were identified by family history or after symptom development. These young patients with ALD and adrenal insufficiency support newborn screening for ALD.
