21-hydroxylase deficiency is caused by mutations in CYP21A1 and CYP21A2 genes found on chromosome 6. Approximately 70% of CYP21A2 disease is due to gene conversion and microdeletions in CYP21A1 gene; around 25% to 30% are chimeric genes due to large deletions. Less common causes are due to de novo mutations because of high variability of the CYP21A2 locus. Also, chromosome 6 uniparental disomy is rare cause of 21-hydroxylase deficiency with an unknown prevalence.
- Life-threatening causes include conditions which may result in death or permanent disability within 24 hours if left untreated. There are no life-threatening causes of 21-hydroxylase deficiency.
- Approximately 70% of disease associated with CYP21A2 is due to gene conversion and microdeletions in CYP21A1 gene.
- Approximately 25% to 30% are chimeric genes due to large deletions.
- Approximately 1% to 2% of cases are due to de novo mutations because of high variability of the CYP21A2 locus.
- Chromosome 6 uniparental disomy is a rare cause of 21-hydroxylase deficiency with an unknown prevalence.
