We experienced a 24-year-old male patient with myalgia and myoglobuinuria followed by severe exercise from childhood. In 18 years old, he had severe myaglia after a long time-night trip by bus. He was diagnosed as acute renal failure induced by rhabdomyolysis and treated with hemodialysis. In 24 years old, he was admitted to our hospital because of repeated(More)
We describe a male infant with carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2 (CPT2) deficiency who presented with acute encephalopathy related to human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) infection. He was hospitalized for pylexia and status epilepticus, diagnosed with acute encephalopathy, and treated with intensive supportive care including mechanical ventilation, support for(More)
An 8-year-old girl with progressive ataxia and bulbar palsy showed diffuse white-matter lesions in the occipital to parietal lobes on magnetic resonance imaging. Since she had slightly elevated lactate in the cerebrospinal fluid, a muscle biopsy was done which revealed scattered ragged-red fibres and focal cytochrome c oxidase deficiency. Southern blot and(More)
Citrin deficiency is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder caused by a defect in the mitochondrial aspartate/glutamate antiporter, citrin. The disorder manifests either as neonatal intra-hepatic cholestasis or occurs in adulthood with recurrent hyperammonemia and neuropsychiatric disturbances. It has a high prevalence in the East Asian population, but is(More)
Carnitine palmitoyl transferase I (CPT I) deficiency is a rare disorder of long-chain fatty acid oxidation. It is one of the metabolic diseases detectable by tandem mass spectrometry. We report herein a presymptomatic CPT I deficiency detected in a Japanese female newborn by tandem mass spectrometry newborn screening. A mutation analysis of the CPT1A gene(More)
We recorded the auditory brainstem responses of rats fed a thiamin-deficient diet. The interpeak latencies between waves I and III, as well as those between waves I and IV, were significantly prolonged from day 24, while the latency of wave I was prolonged on day 26 of the thiamin-deficient diet. These delayed responses were corrected in 2 to 4 days after(More)
was slightly distended but hepatosplenomegaly was not observed. Laboratory data showed: white blood cell count 15,010 /μL, red blood cell count 379 × 10 4 /μL, hemo-globin 12.4 g/dL, hematocrit 36.7 %, platelet count 30.3 × 10 4 /μL, total protein 6.4 g/dL, albumin 3.0 g/dL, total biliru-bin 2.5 mg/dL, aspartate aminotransferase 112 IU/L, alanine(More)
l-2-Hydroxyglutaric aciduria (l-2-HGA) is a rare inborn error of metabolism. Mainly, patients with this disorder exhibit neurological symptoms and characteristic neuroradiological findings, such as subcortical white matter abnormalities, which are believed to be caused by the toxicity of the accumulation of l-2-hydroxyglutaric acid. A genotype-first(More)
INTRODUCTION An increasing number of adult patients have been diagnosed with fatty acid β-oxidation disorders with the rising use of diagnostic technologies. In this study, clinical, biochemical, and molecular characteristics of 2 Japanese patients with adult-onset glutaric acidemia type II (GA2) were investigated and compared with those of pediatric cases.(More)
