Two-step biochemical differential diagnosis of classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency and cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase deficiency in Japanese infants by GC-MS measurement of urinary pregnanetriolone/ tetrahydroxycortisone ratio and 11β-hydroxyandrosterone.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The clinical differential diagnosis of classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency (C21OHD) and cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase deficiency (PORD) is sometimes difficult, because both deficiencies can have similar phenotypes and high blood concentrations of 17α-hydroxyprogesterone (17OHP). The objective of this study was to identify biochemical markers for… (More)
