Diagnostic Test list for Deep voice:

The list of diagnostic tests mentioned in various sources as used in the diagnosis of Deep voice includes:

  • Physical examination
    • If suspect precocious puberty in male, examine for papilledema and nervous system signs that may suggest a brain tumor; unilateral pigmentation that may suggest McCune-Albright syndrome; a testicular mass that may suggest Leydig cell tumor or hyperplasia
    • Examine for signs of Cushing's syndrome? - e.g. thin skin, bruising, high blood pressure, stretch marks, proximal muscle weakness, acne, pigmentation, excess hair on face, frontal balding in males, moon face, buffalo hump, truncal obesity, fluid retention.
  • Blood tests
    • Serum FSH, LH
    • Testosterone
    • Thyroid function tests
    • 17-hydroxyprogesterone and ACTH levels are increased in congenital adrenal hyperplasia
    • If suspect Cushing's syndrome test electrolytes (looking for low potassium in Cushing's syndrome due to adrenal tumors); blood sugar (Impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes are common with Cushing's syndrome); and a long Dexamethasone suppression test (diagnoses Cushing's syndrome and can differentiate pituitary from adrenal cause of Cushing's syndrome
    • If suspect acromegaly, test growth hormone levels, growth hormone suppression tests after glucose load, IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) levels, pituitary function and prolactin levels
  • Urine tests
    • 24 hour urinary FSH and LH
    • Urine analysis - glucose present in Cushing's syndrome.
    • 24 hour Urinary free cortisol measurement to help diagnose Cushing's syndrome
  • Radiological investigations
    • CT or MRI brain scan - if precocious puberty and serum FSH, LH are increased; may detect pituitary tumor that may cause 60% of cases of Cushing's syndrome or cause acromegaly.
    • CT Abdomen and pelvis - may identify adrenal or ovarian tumor.
    • Ultrasound of testicles - may identify testicular tumor.
    • Chest X-Ray and/or Ct scan - may detect a lung cancer that rarely may produce ACTH hormone that can cause Cushing's syndrome.
