Tyrosinemia without liver or renal damage with plantar and palmar keratosis and keratitis (hypertyrosinemia type II).

Abstract

A boy of 3 2/12 years of age with Richner-Hanhart syndrome (plantar and palmar keratosis and chronic keratitis) was found to have hypertyrosinemia and to excrete the hydroxyacids derived from tyrosine. A diet poor in phenylalanine and tyrosine cured the skin and corneal lesions. Clinical and biochemical observations are reported.
