Comment: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid which is produced by both adrenal cortex and testis. This test is used to evaluate adrenal carcinomas which frequently secrete large amounts of DHEA, as well as for assessment of the onset of puberty (adrenarche) and delayed puberty. Like cortisol, DHEA exhibits a diurnal variation, benign at its highest in the morning. DHEA is elevated in cases of hirsutism and virilization. There is moderate decrease during pregnancy
