wutuwantbruv  Can't be 17α-hydroxylase because this would present with hypertension and some sort of ambiguous sexual presentation (males) or lack of secondary sexual development (females). Can't be 11β-hydroxylase because this would present with the opposite of the kid's presentation due to the production of 11-deoxycorticosterone (similar effects to aldosterone but not nearly as potent). The other two would not really make sense since there are increased levels of 17-hydroxyprogesterone. +
