NIH Rare Diseases:46 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3bhsd) deficiency is a form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a group of conditions that interfere with the body's ability to make hormones. people with this condition lack many of the hormones made in the gonads (testes or ovaries) and the adrenal glands. there are three types of 3bhsd deficiency - the salt-wasting form, non-salt-wasting form, and non-classic form. signs and symptoms depend on the type of 3bhsd deficiency; the age at diagnosis; and the sex of the affected person. the salt-wasting form is the most severe type and can even be life-threatening. people with this form are generally diagnosed at birth due to symptoms related to abnormal salt reabsorption (i.e. dehydration, poor feeding, vomiting). males with any form of the condition often have abnormalities of the external genitalia and are frequently infertile. females with the condition may have slight genital abnormalities at birth, but often go on to experience irregular menstruation, hirsutism, and infertility as they get older. 3bhsd deficiency is caused by changes (mutations) in the hsd3b2 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. treatment varies but may include medications and/or surgery. last updated: 11/17/2015
MalaCards based summary: 3-Beta-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase, Type Ii, Deficiency, also known as 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency, is related to 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-deficient congenital adrenal hyperplasia and acth-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia 2, and has symptoms including Array, Array and Array. An important gene associated with 3-Beta-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase, Type Ii, Deficiency is HSD3B2 (Hydroxy-Delta-5-Steroid Dehydrogenase, 3 Beta- And Steroid Delta-Isomerase 2). Affiliated tissues include adrenal gland, ovary and testes.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Adrenal hyperplasia 2: A form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a common recessive disease due to defective synthesis of cortisol. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is characterized by androgen excess leading to ambiguous genitalia in affected females, rapid somatic growth during childhood in both sexes with premature closure of the epiphyses and short adult stature. Four clinical types: 'salt wasting' (SW, the most severe type), 'simple virilizing' (SV, less severely affected patients), with normal aldosterone biosynthesis, 'non-classic form' or late-onset (NC or LOAH) and 'cryptic' (asymptomatic). In AH2, virilization is much less marked or does not occur. AH2 is frequently lethal in early life.
Genetics Home Reference:24 3-beta (β)-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD) deficiency is an inherited disorder that affects hormone-producing glands including the gonads (ovaries in females and testes in males) and the adrenal glands. The gonads direct sexual development before birth and during puberty. The adrenal glands, which are located on top of the kidneys, regulate the production of certain hormones and control salt levels in the body. People with 3β-HSD deficiency lack many of the hormones that are made in these glands. 3β-HSD deficiency is one of a group of disorders known as congenital adrenal hyperplasias that impair hormone production and disrupt sexual development and maturation.
