UNLABELLED Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is a lysosomal disease due to mutations in the gene encoding alpha-l-iduronidase (IDUA) leading to variable clinical phenotypes with progressive severe organomegaly, bone and neurological involvement in the most severe forms. The aim of our study was to propose in Tunisia a strategy of molecular and prenatal(More)
OBJECTIVES Determination of the superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and the total antioxidant status (TAS) and evaluation of inflammation by the use of high sensitivity C reactive protein (hs-CRP) among Tunisian coronary diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS We measured the erythrocyte GPX activity and the plasmatic TAS(More)
Scholz's disease or metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) is a lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency in arylsulfatase A (ARSA: EC 3.1.6.8). This enzyme is responsible for the degradation of sulfatides commonly called cerebroside-3-sulfate or 3-O-sulfogalactosylcéramide in galactocérébroside and sulfate. The success of hydrolysis of these(More)
Our study was carried out at a family from the Sahel (Tunisia). The father (index case) and his two children (son and daughter). The father beta-glucocerebrosidase (GCB) activity showing a deficit. These biochemical analyses are supplemented by molecular studies: enzymatic digestion and the direct sequencing. Two mutations were analysed, the p.Asn 370 Ser(More)
Gaucher disease is one of the most prevalent lysosomal disorders. In this present study, we report a diagnostic strategy of type 1 Gaucher disease. The application of combined methods in molecular biology allowed us to analyse the p.Asn 370 Ser mutation. The affected individual activity is very low. First, we have to used the enzymatic digestion method.(More)
Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a rare drug-induced disease characterized by extensive epidermal destruction. We reported here a case of Lyell syndrome which happened few hours later after treatment associating lincomycine chlorhydrate with nonsteroidol anti-inflammatory drugs. The 28-year-old female patient developed many visceral complications with(More)
