Inherited aortopathy, characterized with a high risk of fetal aortic aneurysms/dissections, could occur secondary to several syndromes. To identify genetic mutations and help to give a precise diagnosis, we performed a gene panel testing, involving 15 genes related to inherited aortopathy. Here we reported 10 patients, combining with the genetic testing(More)
Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by a partial deficiency of porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD), the third enzyme of the heme biosynthetic pathway. Establishing accurate diagnoses of the patient and asymptomatic family members with AIP involves identifying the PBGD enzyme mutations directly. Genetic testing provides a(More)
Inherited aortopathy, which is characterized by a high risk of fatal aortic aneurysms/dissections, can occur secondarily to several syndromes. To identify genetic mutations and help make a precise diagnosis, we designed a gene panel containing 15 genes responsible for inherited aortopathy and tested 248 probands with aortic disease or Marfan syndrome.
