X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) leads to demyelination of the nervous system, adrenal insufficiency and accumulation of long-chain fatty acids. Most young patients with X-linked ALD develop seizures and progressive neurologic deficits, and die within the first two decades of life. We present the case of a 6-year-old with childhood-onset ALD, first(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by the deficit of the arylsulfatase B (ARSB) enzyme, which leads to dermatan sulfate pathological storage, resulting in a wide spectrum of clinical phenotypes. To date more than 130 different mutations were reported, most of them being restricted to(More)
Apocrine chromhidrosis is a very rare, idiopathic disorder of the sweat glands characterized by the secretion of colored sweat. Because hormonal induction increases sweating, the symptoms of apocrine chromhidrosis usually begin after puberty. Although treatment may not be necessary in some cases, capsaicin cream and 20% aluminum chloride hexahydrate(More)
Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome (BVVLS) is a rare and severe neurometabolic disease. We present two siblings with BVVLS with a novel homozygous mutation in SLC52A3 (formerly C20orf54) gene. The first sibling was admitted with respiratory insufficiency and required mechanical ventilation. After administration of a high dose of riboflavin, all his clinical(More)
Although propionic acidemia (PA) is a devastating inherited metabolic disease, with early diagnosis and advanced treatment strategies prognosis gets better and girls can survive to child-bearing ages. We share the detailed follow-up data of the pregnancy, successful labor with cesarean section and a healthy baby of a Turkish patient with PA.
BACKGROUND Phenylketonuria (PKU) often requires a lifelong phenylalanine (Phe)-restricted diet. Introduction of 6R-tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) has made a huge difference in the diets of patients with PKU. BH4 is the co-factor of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) and improves PAH activity and, thus, Phe tolerance in the diet. A limited number of(More)
We have conducted this study for the purposes of demonstrating the spectrum of mutations and of identifying their effects on the phenotype, with a particular focus on the clinical course, prognosis and response to treatment. A total of 25 patients from 20 families, who have been treated and followed up after being diagnosed with cystinosis. Nine patients(More)
Tyrosinemia type I is an autosomal recessively inherited metabolic disease of tyrosine metabolism due to the deficiency of fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase. Clinical manifestations include hepatic failure, cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, renal fanconi syndrome, and neurologic crisis. With the introduction of 2-(2-nitro-4-trifluoro-methylbenzyol)-1,3(More)
BACKGROUND 3-Methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase (3-MCC) deficiency is an autosomal recessively inherited disease of leucine catabolism. It is the most commonly observed organic acidemia where tandem mass spectrometry can be performed in newborn screening. The clinical phenotypes may differ from neurological involvement in newborns to asymptomatic adults.(More)
