Disease Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital

Name Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital
Synonyms Adrenal Hyperplasias, Congenital | Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia | Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasias | Hyperplasia, Congenital Adrenal | Hyperplasias, Congenital Adrenal
Definition A group of inherited disorders of the ADRENAL GLANDS, caused by enzyme defects in the synthesis of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) and/or ALDOSTERONE leading to accumulation of precursors for ANDROGENS. Depending on the hormone imbalance, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be classified as salt-wasting, hypertensive, virilizing, or feminizing. Defects in STEROID 21-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 11-BETA-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE; 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES); TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE; or steroidogenic acute regulatory protein; among others, underlie these disorders.
Categories Congenital abnormality | Endocrine system disease | Genetic disease (inborn) | Metabolic disease | Urogenital disease (female) | Urogenital disease (male)
MeSH® ID D000312
