We present the third case of Niemann–Pick disease type C without neurological symptoms. The patient was a 53-year-old woman without significant prior health problems who died of acute pulmonary embolism. Autopsy findings of hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and ceroid-rich foam cells raised the suspicion of the visceral form of acid sphingomyelinase(More)
Female carriers of hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) deficiency have somatic cell mosaicism of HPRT activity and are healthy. We report a 50-year-old woman without gout or nephrolithiasis. She was never on allopurinol. Normal serum uric acid concentrations, increased plasma hypoxanthine, and xanthine were found. HPRT activity in(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder that is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme alpha-L-iduronidase (IDUA). Of the 21 Czech and Slovak patients who have been diagnosed with MPS I in the last 30 years, 16 have a severe clinical presentation (Hurler syndrome), 2 less severe manifestations (Scheie(More)
The aim of this study was to identify mutations in the gene encoding for lysosomal beta-glucocerebrosidase (GBA; gene symbol, GBA) in Hungarian patients with Gaucher disease (GD), and to study genotype-phenotype relationships. Genotypes and allele variations in 27 patients with type I GD of 25 unrelated families were studied. Of the 54 mutant alleles, we(More)
An autopsy and microscopic analyses of a 74-year-old female with a clinical history of cardiac hypertrophy and hypertension disclosed a pronounced distension of lysosomal compartment with signs of excessive autophagocytosis, predominantly in cardiomyocytes, hepatocytes and smooth muscle cells of the small intestine. The histological storage pattern did not(More)
Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency, transmitted as an X-linked trait, is the most common disorder of the urea cycle. At least 3.5% out of more than 230 mutations consist of large gene deletions, involving one or more exons. Only in 78% of OTC patients the diagnosis was confirmed on DNA level. We analysed OTC intragenic polymorphisms and haplotypes,(More)
This is the first neuropathology report of a male patient (born 1960–died 1975) with an extremely rare, atypical variant of CLN2 that has been diagnosed only in five families so far. The clinical history started during his preschool years with relatively mild motor and psychological difficulties, but with normal intellect and vision. Since age six there(More)
