A study of normal subjects showed that the 24-h urinary 6 beta-hydroxycortisol level is age-dependent, with a maximum at 14-20 yr in both men and women.

There was a significant difference between boys and girls aged 5-10 yr, but no difference in other subjects. No sex difference was demonstrable in the ratio of 6 beta-hydroxycortisol/cortisol.
