Corticosterone methyloxidase deficiency, also known as aldosterone synthase deficiency, is a condition characterized by elevated sodium release in the urine and inadequate release of potassium in the urine, usually beginning in the first few weeks of life. Individuals with corticosterone methyloxidase deficiency can also have elevated amounts of acid in the blood. Severe cases of corticosterone methyloxidase deficiency can lead to seizures and coma, and it can be life-threatening. However, affected individuals who survive infanthood have a normal life expectancy, and the disorder's signs and symptoms can often become milder or disappear by adulthood.
