A 4-year-old girl in your practice was noted to have clitoromegaly at birth and was diagnosed with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). She was diagnosed as having classic CAH caused by 21-hydroxylase deficiency and has been doing well on glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids prescribed by her pediatric endocrinologist. Her mother is considering another pregnancy and wishes to know what she needs to be aware of in a future pregnancy.

Of the following, you are MOST likely to tell her that

slide36

A. at birth, an affected female would be expected to have a similar degree of virilization as her sister

B. at birth, an affected male is likely to have ambiguous genitalia

C. at birth, the majority of affected males will not require glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids

D. prenatal administration of dexamethasone is important for both male and female fetuses

E. prenatal diagnosis for CAH can be accomplished using molecular technologies through amniocentesis

A mother of a patient in your practice reports that she is currently 8 weeks pregnant and just discontinued use of danazol, which she was taking for treatment of severe endometriosis. She has been told that use of this medication in the first trimester of pregnancy can be associated with birth defects and wishes to know what possible birth defects can be seen with use of this medication in pregnancy.

Of the following, you are MOST likely to tell her that use of danazol in pregnancy is associated with an increased risk for

slide39

A. anterior abdominal wall defects

B. congenital heart defects

C. neural tube defects

D. renal malformations

E. virilizationof a female fetus

A 5-year-old girl with classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency (congenital adrenal hyperplasia) develops gastroenteritis with fever (up to 38.9°C), vomiting, and diarrhea. Her regular medications include hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone. Upon presentation to the emergency department, she is tired-appearing and remains febrile. Her pulse rate is 162 beats/min, blood pressure is 62/40 mm Hg, and capillary refill is poor. Laboratory tests drawn in the emergency department are still pending, but fingerstick glucose level is 42 mg/dL (2.3 mmol/L). The patient is treated with a bolus of normal saline to restore circulatory support.

Of the following, the MOST important therapy to administer to this patient next is

slide42

A. cortisone acetate intramuscularly and aldosterone intravenously

B. cortisone acetate intramuscularly and dextrose intravenously

C. dopamine and dextrose intravenously

D. hydrocortisone hemisuccinate and aldosterone intravenously

E. hydrocortisone hemisuccinate and dextrose intravenously

During a regularly scheduled visit, the mother of a 10-year-old boy who has had type 1 diabetes mellitus for 5 years expresses concern about her son’s increased frequency of hypoglycemic episodes over the past 3 months. She also notes that he is increasingly tired and that his skin is getting tanner even though he has not had any sun exposure.

Of the following, the MOST appropriate next step in this boy’s management is to order a

slide45

A. cortisol level drawn at 7 am

B. cortisol level drawnat 4 pm

C. dexamethasone (1 mg) suppression test

D. high-dose (250 μg) corticotropin stimulation test

E. low-dose (1 μg) corticotropin stimulation test
