Prenatal diagnosis of congenital adrenal hyperplasia

Academic Article


  • The accurate prenatal diagnosis of 21-β-hydroxylase deficiency, based on amniotic fluid levels of 17-hydroxyprogesterone, is documented for a fetus 14 1/2 weeks old. In addition, family HLA genotyping data are consistent with the purported linkage between the HLA locus and the locus for 21-β-hydroxylase.
