Wink Hypertension and Adrenogenital syndromes

If the case describes hypertension + increased adrenal androgen production such as hairsuitism and acne then think 11 Beta Hydorxylase deficiency

If the case describes hypertension + decreased adrenal androgen production such as loss of hair then think 17 Alfa Hydroxylase deficiency

Check your references and you will know why
