Jump to navigation Jump to search

Decreased activity of the enzyme 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 due to inactivating mutation(s) in the hsd11b1 gene. The condition is characterized by hyperandrogenism as a result of increased adrenocorticotropic hormone stimulation of the adrenal gland due to failure of cortisol-mediated down-regulation, and is clinically indistinguishable from h6pd deficiency.
