The metabolites of dopamine (homovanillic acid-HVA), noradrenaline (4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-phenylglycol-HMPG), and serotonin (5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid-5-HIAA) were measured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 38 patients and urine from 36 patients with typical Rett syndrome (RS) and compared with controls of similar age. CSF metabolite concentrations were the same in the patients and controls. Urinary metabolites expressed per mol creatinine were significantly higher in older RS patients. This… CONTINUE READING
