The condition Cysticercosis is a parasitic tissue infection caused by larval cysts of the tapeworm Taenia soliumDiagnosis:Stools are examined under microscope for ova and proglottids.CT and/or MRI and serologic testing for patients with central ne  Read More

  • Familial jaundice

    Jaundice is the abnormal accumulation of bilirubin in the body tissues, resulting in yellow discoloration. Familial jaundice is a type of jaundice caused by mutations in the gene UGT-1A that encodes the enzyme uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase.TreatmentLiver transplantation: It is the only therapeutic and definitive therapy. The transplanted liver has no abnormality of conjugation and thus red  Read More

  • Glutaricacidemia i

    Glutaric acidemia I is a rare and severe inherited condition that makes the body unable to digest certain types of protein ( amino acids). This results in organic acid disorder that results in an abnormal buildup of organic acid in blood and urine. Moreover, the tissues of the body can also be intoxicated and serve health problems like brain damage, kidney, and liver failure.People with Glutaric acidemia I lack par  Read More

  • Glycinemia nonketotic

    Non-ketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH)/glycinemia nonketotic is a rare, genetic metabolic disorder. The disorder is caused by a defect in the enzyme system which helps break down the amino acid glycine. This results in the accumulation of large quantities of glycine in all body tissues, including the brain. There is a classical form of NKH and a variant form of NKH. The classical form is then further divided into severe disorder or  Read More

  • Lipid storage disease

    Lipid storage disease is a condition in which an enzyme in catabolism or transport of lipid is expressed in a lower quantity, or the expressed enzyme is non-functional. It leads to the accumulation of lipids in abnormally high quantities.SymptomsLipid storage diseases are genetic disorders, and hence, the defects are present from birth. The age at which affected individuals develop symptoms and progress  Read More

  • Pyroglutamicaciduria

    Pyroglutamicaciduria (PGA) is a rare metabolic disorder that causes high levels of PGA in the blood.Pyroglutamic acid (PA) is an intermediate product of glutamine metabolism.Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that is abundant in the body and is involved in many metabolic processes.PA is formed from glutamine via transamination reactions involving glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH).PA is e  Read More
