Comparison of basal and adrenocorticotropin-stimulated plasma 21-deoxycortisol and 17-hydroxyprogesterone values as biological markers of late-onset adrenal hyperplasia.

Abstract

Plasma 21-deoxycortisol (21-DOF) and 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) concentrations were assayed before (basal) and 1 h after ACTH stimulation in 4 groups of normal subjects (35 follicular phase women, 22 luteal phase women, 33 adult men, and 15 prepubertal children) and in a group of 31 patients with the late-onset form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia… (More)
