Congenital methemoglobinemia is a relatively rare clinical disorder characterized by life-long cyanosis, caused by either an inherited mutant hemoglobin (Hb-M) or deficiency of physiologically active NADH-dependent methemoglobin reductase (NADH-MR). NADH-MR deficiency leads to two different types of recessive congenital methemoglobinemia. In type I… CONTINUE READING
