A fluorometric method for determination of 11-hydroxycorticosteroid in urine as a measure of adrenocortical activity has been adapted for use. Recoveries from pooled urine N10 ranged from 94-115, x 105. Day-to-day reproducibility studies N10 showed S.D. plus or minus 14 for the method. Replicate determinations performed on the same day varied by no more than 5. Twenty-four hour urinary excretion for 20 healthy male volunteers age 20-60 years ranged from 84-225 microgramsday, x 160 micrograms.
