Adrenal hypoplasia congenita
X-linked adrenal hypoplasia congenita
Autosomal recessive adrenal hypoplasia congenita
IMAGe syndrome
Adrenal hypoplasia congenita (AHC) is an inherited disorder of the adrenal cortex commonly manifested as an early onset adrenal insufficiency syndrome. AHC includes X-linked form, a rare autosomal recessive form, and IMAGe syndrome. If untreated with glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids, adrenal insufficiency is rapidly lethal as a result of hyperkalemia, acidosis, hypoglycemia, and shock. A constant feature of the X-linked AHC is the association with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HHG). Affected males typically have delayed puberty or arrested puberty caused by HHG. Mutations in the DAX-1 (NR0B1) gene are responsible for X-linked AHC. Autosomal recessive AHC is caused by mutations in SF-1 (NR5A1) gene. However, disruption of SF-1 only rarely causes adrenal insufficiency, usually in combination with testicular dysgenesis. IMAGe syndrome (intrauterine growth restriction, metaphyseal dysplasia, adrenal hypoplasia congenita and genital anomalies) is an autosomal dominant undergrowth developmental disorder with life-threatening consequences and caused by mutations in CDKN1C.
