Spiroxasone (INN, USAN) is a synthetic, steroidal antimineralocorticoid of the spirolactone group which was developed as a diuretic and antihypertensive agent but was never marketed.[1][2] It was synthesized and assayed in 1963.[1] The drug is 7α-acetylthiospirolactone with the ketone group removed from the C17α spirolactone ring.[1] Similarly to other spirolactones like spironolactone, spiroxasone also possesses antiandrogen activity.[3][4]
