Adrenal hyperplasia

Ian Suchet, MD

Canada

These are several images of a female fetus with an adrenal hyperplasia. The mother received steroids during the gestation to prevent virilization. The baby was born without any sign of ambiguous genitalia. The final diagnosis was a congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency.

 

Note the bilateral adrenal hyperplasia.
