D-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria: Case report and biochemical studies
- 174 Downloads
A patient with protein-losing gastroenteropathy and egg allergy has been shown to have a previously unrecognized organic aciduria,d-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria. The observations made are consistent with an inherited metabolic disorder in the catabolism of 5-aminolaevulinate possibly due to deficient activity of a specificd-2-hydroxyglutarate dehydrogenase.
