Ferritinemia with subnormal iron stores in lysinuric protein intolerance.


To study the mechanism of ferritinemia in patients with lysinuric protein intolerance (LPI), an autosomal recessive disorder of diamino acid transport, we made a histologic evaluation of intracellular iron and/or ferritin in bone marrow and liver aspirates of 21 patients. We found no stainable iron in bone marrow cells. This was also the case in the liver… (More)
