OBJECTIVE Recent studies have indicated that the syndrome of congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency is closely associated with the development of benign adrenocortical tumours. Tumour formation is thought to be a consequence of ACTH hypersecretion which results from the lack of glucocorticoid synthesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate 21-hydroxylase activity in patients with an incidentally discovered adrenal mass ('incidentaloma') without a history of congenital… CONTINUE READING
