Author information

  • 1Pediatric Endocrinology, Hospital Materno-Infantil, Málaga, Spain.


Two female infants with clinical and biochemical findings of mineralocorticoid deficiency are presented. Both cases were diagnosed with aldosterone synthase type-I deficiency by multisteroid analysis. Two different mutations were located in the CYP11B2 gene: two homozygous amino acid substitutions (E188D and V386A) in case 1, and one heterozygous substitution (L324Q) and one heterozygous stop mutation (Y265X) in case 2.
