Abstract

The 24-hour integrated concentration of aldosterone, plasma renin activity, and 17-hydroxprogesteronewas measured simultaneously in 12 patients with congenital virilizing adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency. Eight were salt-losers and four nonsalt-lowers. Seven normal children served as control subjects. All patients were receiving glucocorticoid replacement therapy (32 mg/m2/day). All but one of the SL-CVAH patients were also being treated with 9α-fluorocortisol. The mean (±SD) IC-PRA of the control subjects was 1.6±0.7 ng/ml/hour and in the NSL-CVAH patients was similar (1.6±0.7 and 2.2±1.0 ng/ml/hour). The IC-PRA of the SL-CVAH patients (21.1±28.8 ng/ml/hour) was significantly (P
