We present a branded mature newborn baby who was diagnosed as having adrenocorticotropic hormone resistance syndrome. This problem is very rare in Turkey; however, it is a very important health issue and has social aspects.
Adrenocorticotropic hormone resistance syndrome was considered in our patient with the hormone tests performed because of hypoglycemia.
These include subclinical hypothyroidism, Graves' disease, autoimmune thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, polycystic ovary syndrome, fibrocystic breast disease, obesity, sleep apnea, cardiac arrhythmia, diabetes (both types), hypertension, and hormone resistance syndromes
. The problem is, this deficiency is not only common, it's difficult to diagnose.
