Age of diagnosis of males with CAH varies and depends on the severity of aldosterone deficiency.5,6 Cortisol is an adrenal steroid hormone, essential for normal endocrine function.
This study using simultaneous LC-MS/MS measurements of 15 adrenal steroids in plasma establishes distinct steroid metabolome profiles that might be useful as a test for CS.
CAH is a genetic disorder that results in an enzyme deficiency altering the production of adrenal steroids. Because of this deficiency, the adrenal glands have little to no cortisol biosynthesis resulting in a potentially life-threatening condition.

The initial work-up must include baseline gonadotropin levels (LH and FSH), gonadal sex steroids (testosterone, estradiol, and an drostenedione), and adrenal steroids (17 [alpha]-hydroxyprogesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate).
Formation of the granule cells of the dentate gyrus, in particular, is closely linked to adrenal steroids (51).
There are also well-known inaccuracies in immunoassay methods (14-22) that may particularly impact adrenal venous measurements of adrenal steroids, such as aldosterone, where immuno-crossreactivity with high concentrations of other steroids could compromise results.
