    Birthweights of 28 male and 38 female patients with congenital virilizing adrenal hyperplasia were compared with those of 27 male and 26 female unaffected sibs and newborns in Ontario. Only female patients were found to be significantly heavier than the female controls and female sibs. The mean birthweight of salt-losers was not significantly different from that of non-salt-losers. The female patients with more severe genital abnormalities did not have higher birthweight than those with less severe genital abnormalities.
