Defective steroid synthesis due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency is the most common form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Knowledge of the molecular defects causing 21-hydroxylase deficiency in different populations is of both theoretical and practical interest. The types and the relative frequencies of molecular defects and the correlation between the genotype and the phenotype were examined in the Hellenic population. We searched for deletions, conversions, and 11 of the most frequent mutations… CONTINUE READING
