17 -Hydroxylase deficiency is a rare form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia that is characterized by primary amenorrhea, absence of secondary sex characteristics, hypertension, and a hypokalemic alkalosis that has resulted resulting from increased production of deoxycorticosterone and corticosterone by the adrenal. The diagnosis of this enzyme deficiency can be recognized by the increasing serum concentrations of steroid precursors, DOC and corticosterone and the decreasing concentrations of cortisol, and adrenal androgens. We diagnosed this in a 19 year old female who presented with primary amenorrhea. We report this case with a review of the literatures.
