A new case of 17 beta hydroxysteroid deshydrogenase deficiency is reported. In venous blood, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHA) level is normal, but the level of basal testosterone (T) is low, and delta 4 androstenedione (delta 4 A) is ten times higher than the normal level. The increase of delta4AT is characteristic after chorionic gonadotropin stimulation and over more in spermatic venous blood. Estrone (E1) produced from delta 4 A is high but estradiol (E2) level is equally low in systemic… CONTINUE READING
