The authors propose through a clinical case with a patient 46XX DSD pregnant. The main cause of this pathology is congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which we lead to deficits of 21-hydoxylase, 11-beta-hydroxylase, 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, but 95% of the congenital adrenal hyperplasia is the deficiency of 21-hydoxylase. The treatment of congenital adrenal hyperplasia depend of the cause, hormone replacement therapy like (dexamethasone, hydrocortisone), most often the treatment for life is needed. From this we propose to make review of literature focusing on it.
