Increased acth-both deficiencies result in a decrease in cortisol levels which results in an increase in acth. 21-beta-hydroxylase causes adrenogenital syndrome, where only androgens are increased. 17-alpha-hydroxylase deficiency results in decrease in all except mineralocorticoids. heres a visual:--------------21-hydroxylase deficiency .............17-hydroxylase deficiency zona granulosa - aldosterone + aldosterone zona fasciculata - cortisol - cortisol zona reticularis + androgens - androgens
