Case Summary

A 35-year-old Hispanic man presented to the emergency department with a two-day history of abdominal pain, non-bilious vomiting and acute anorexia.

The patient was previously diagnosed with hypospadias and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) but has been without treatment for 3 years, due to lack of insurance. Surgical, family and social history were non-contributory.

Review of systems was negative, including no weight loss and no fever. Physical exam was within normal limits.
