summary and explanation
the steroid 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone (17-α-ohp) is produced by both the adrenal cortex and gonads. even though 17-α-ohp has relatively little progestational activity, it is of intense clinical interest because it is the immediate precursor to 11-desoxycortisol (cpd-s). because cpd-s is produced by 21-hydroxylation of 17-α-ohp, measurement of 17-α-ohp is a useful indirect indicator of 21-hydroxylase activity. in congenital 21-hydroxylase deficiency, the most common variety of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (cah), 17-α-ohp is secreted in abundant excess. it is moderately elevated in the 11-β-hydroxylase deficiency as well. measurement of 17-α-ohp is therefore valuable in the initial diagnosis of cah.
