Hello, I am an OB/GYN and can help you with this. CAH is recessive, so that means that both parents have to have at least one copy of the gene in order to pass it to the child. Are you a carrier for CAH? Is the diagnosis of CAH certain? If your husband is the father of your son, then both of you would have to be a carrier in order for him to have CAH. If he has CAH for sure, and your husband is not a carrier and/or you are not a carrier, in rare cases it is possible for your son to have a spontaneous mutation in the gene that causes CAH.
