Adrenogenital syndrome is caused by a defect in biosynthesis of adrenal corticoids as a result of deficiency in one of the essential enzymes, most commonly 21-hydroxylase. About 50% of 21-hydroxylase deficiency have salt losing type as a result of aldosterone deficiency. We have experienced a casa of adrenogenital syndrome associated with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (salt losing form) in a 3 months old female infant with severe dehydration and malnutrition due to persistent vomiting and diarrhea since shortly after the birth. And the patient was expired at the age of 4 month. Serum electrolytes revealed hyponatremia and hyper kalemia. Urinary 17-ketosteroid level was markedly elevated and 17-OHCS level was slightly decreased. She was diagnosed as a salt losing form of adrenogenital syndrome. We reported, here, this case with autopsy findings and literatures were briefly reviewed.
Key Words: Adrenogenital syndrome, Salt losing form
