|Abstract:||A case of feminizing adrenocortical tumor with positive glucose tolerance test in man, 39 years of age, is described. Urinary 17-KS, estrogens, 17-OHCS and pregnanediol were determined both before and after the infusion of ACTH, PMS and Dexamethazone (DM), and surgical removal of the tumor. Elevated levels of urinary total estrogen, 17-KS (predominantly DHA) and pregnanediol were obserbed. Urinary steroid excretion was unchanged following ACTH, PMS and DM infusion, so steroid biosynthesis in this tumor might be autonomous. Postoperatively feminizing syndrome was subsided and ur i n ary steroid levels returned to the normal ranges.|
