Recent identification of the urate transporter in the kidney (URAT1, encoded by SLC22A12) led to the molecular elucidation of idiopathic renal hypouricemia, which is a predisposition toward exercise-induce acute renal failure. One Japanese patient with renal hypouricemia demonstrated compound heterozygous mutations of the URAT1 gene (Q297X and IVS2+1G>A).(More)
In adults, serum uric acid levels are positively correlated with body mass index (BMI) and hyperuricemia is considered to be a common lifestyle disorder related with obesity. However, the relation of serum uric acid levels with obesity has not been elucidated in children and adolescents. Serum uric acid levels were determined in 1,729 healthy children,(More)
We report a case of refractory Fusarium paronychia in a 42-year-old man with Behçet's disease receiving oral cyclosporin and corticosteroid. Symptoms resembling candidal paronychia of his little finger could not be cured by topical ketoconazole and oral terbinafine. The pathogen was identified as Fusarium solani species complex by gene analysis, and was(More)
It is still in doubt whether the standard-dose growth hormone (GH) used in Japan (0.5 IU/kg/week, 0.167 mg/kg/week) for growth hormone deficiency is effective for achieving significant adult height improvement in non-growth hormone deficient (non-GHD) short children. We compared the growth of GH-treated non-GHD short children with that of untreated short(More)
