Question epilepsy diagnosis and CAH connection

Does anyone have any information regarding an epilepsy/abnormal EEG and CAH (congenital adrenal hyperplasia)connection? I have a 6 year old son diagnosed with epilepsy a year ago. He was diagnosed by an abnormal EEG following one "fainting episode". He has since had three EEG's, all with the same result.I also have an 11 year old daughter recently diagnosed with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). In researching this, I found two sites that link abnormal EEG's with CAH. One stated that an epilepsy diagnosis could actually be CAH. Another stated that a CAH diagnosis was actually epilepsy. I have found no other research linking these two conditions but find it confusing because two of my children have been diagnosed with each disorder. Any info. would be helpful.
