First, urinary 17-hydroxycorticosteroid
117 OHCS) level was measured which was normal (11.
Clinically, the most commonly utilized test is measuring the serum or urinary 17-hydroxycorticosteroid
level before and after high-dose (8-mg) dexamethasone suppression.
Over 75% of patients achieve normal levels of urinary free cortisol and 17-hydroxycorticosteroid
while on ketoconazole (Greenberg, 2001).
Serum cortisol and urine 17-hydroxycorticosteroid
, 17-ketosteroid, and titers of serum antithyroglobulin antibodies and antibodies to thyroid peroxidase were also normal.
The historic 24-h 17-hydroxycorticosteroid test is not recommended as a screening test for Cushing syndrome because of low diagnostic accuracy (12).

Finally, the book claims that high-dose dexamethasone suppression testing fails to decrease urinary 17-hydroxycorticosteroid
production in Cushing disease.
Examples of physiological systems that have been reported to be affected include ACTH, oxytocin, vasopressin, norepinephrine, follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin, and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids
, immune, and cardiovascular functions.
The serum adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) level and urinary excretion of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (OHCS) did not differ among the pregnant groups.
Urine measurement of excretion of 17-ketosteroids (17-KS) and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (17-OHCS).
