This review's aim is to outline the potential of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry profiling of steroids in the diagnosis of endogenous human steroid disorders. Mass spectrometry currently provides the highest specificity in clinical steroid analysis. The non-invasive and non-selective GC-MS urinary steroid profiling technique enables diagnosis of almost any adrenal enzyme defects in steroid biosynthesis. While enzymatic defects can be diagnosed from spot urine samples in most cases… CONTINUE READING
