To determine the critical features for the diagnosis of nonclassical 21 hydroxylase deficiency (NC21OHD) without performing adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) test, we studied 186 cases with premature adrenarche. Clinical and laboratory features as well as basal 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) were analyzed to determine factors important for differentiating NC21OHD.
