Steroid excretion patterns in children with gonadal dysgenesis report of 11 cases


, : Steroid excretion patterns in children with gonadal dysgenesis report of 11 cases. Clinica Chimica Acta 27(2): 281-288

The individual urinary C19 and C21 steroids were separated and estimated by differential hydrolysis and by paper chromatography in 11 cases of girls of short stature with the clinical features of gonadal dysgenesis. Ten had 45/XO karotype and 1 had XO/XY. The steroid results were compared with values from normal pre-school, pre-adolescent and adolescent girls at corresponding chronological ages. The pathological cases differed from the normals in showing a low excretion of androsterone but high excretion of androsterone of dehydroepiandrosterone. They also showed a high percentage of 11ß-hydroxycorticosteroid excretion. The excretion of Reichstein's Substance S and its tetrahydro and dihydro metabolites were higher in the patients as compared to the normals.
