Glycine cleavage activity was compared in the livers from three cases of ketotic hyperglycinemia (two cases of propionic acidemia and one case of methylmalonic acidemia) and three controls. In one case of propionic acidemia, glycine cleavage activity (5.2 nmole/mg protein/hr) was normal in the liver obtained at biopsy when the patient was well controlled by(More)
A nationwide neonatal sreening program for phenylketonuria (PKU), maple syrup urine disease (MSUD), homocystinuria, histidinemia and galactosemia was started in Japan in 1977. The total number of infants screened had reached 6,311,754 by March, 1982. A follow-up study revealed the incidence of the disease in Japan: 1/108,823 for PKU; 1/450,840 for(More)
A 6-year-old girl had bilaterally subluxated lenses and liver and platelet dysfunctions. A cyanide-nitroprusside test of the urine was positive. Serum and urinary levels of methionine and homocystine were high. Cystathionine synthetase activity in the cultured skin fibroblasts was negligible. Pyridoxine, 1000 mg/day orally, normalized the serum and urinary(More)
We present 2 cases of battered child syndrome with retinal hemorrhage. Case 1 is a 6-year-old boy who was blinded in both eyes following abuse by his mother's common-law husband. Retinal hemorrhages and optic atrophy were found in both eyes. Case 2 is a 6-month-old boy who developed dyspnea following episodes of abuse by his mother's common-law husband.(More)
A Japanese infant was found to have abdominal distension at the age of 4 weeks. A diagnosis of galactosemia was made at 8 weeks of age. Dietary management completely reversed the hepatosplenomegaly and ceased the progression of lens opacities. Mental retardation was also noted at a later age. We believe this is the first reported case of galactose cataract(More)
