a) X- rayb) 17 hydroxy progesterone---increased in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasiac) CT Scand) US of pelvic regione) Testosterone levelAns: B.The term congenital adrenal hyperplasia encompasses a group of autosomal recessivedisorders, each of which involves a deficiency of an enzyme involved in the synthesis of cortisol,
aldosterone, or both.
Classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia is generally recognized at birth or in earlychildhood because of ambiguous genitalia,salt wasting, or earlyvirilization. Nonclassic adrenal hyperplasia is generally recognized at or after pubertybecause of oligomenorrhea or virilizing signs in females.
Ambigious Genitalia: Female; Male.
Deficiencies of enzyme activity involved in cortisol synthesis result in elevations inconcentrations of corticotropic hormone (previously adrenocorticotropic hormone[ACTH]) that often cause hyperpigmentation. This hyperpigmentation may be subtleand is best observed in the genitalia and areolae.
Hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, and/or hypoglycemia suggests the possibility of adrenal insufficiency.
Hypoglycemia and hypotension may, in part, be due to associated epinephrinesynthesis in the adrenal medulla due to cortisol deficiency.
Children with simple virilizing 21-hydroxylase deficiency or 11-hydroxylase deficiencyhave early pubic hair, phallic enlargement, and accelerated linear growth andadvanced skeletal maturation.
Patients with aldosterone deficiency of any etiology may present with dehydration,hyponatremia, and hyperkalemia, especially with the stress of illness.
Male or female patients with 11-hydroxylase deficiency may present in the second orthird week of life with a salt-losing crisis. However, these patients develophypertension, hypokalemic alkalosis, or both later in life. Upon maturation,mineralocorticoid responsiveness increases, and the elevated concentrations of deoxycorticosterone are sufficient to cause sodium retention, potassium excretion,and hypertension.
