Hereditary transthyretin(TTR) ‐related amyloidosis (ATTRm amyloidosis) is an endemic/non‐endemic, autosomal‐dominant, early‐ and late‐onset, rare, progressive disorder, predominantly manifesting as length‐dependent, small fiber dominant, axonal polyneuropathy and frequently associated with cardiac disorders and other multisystem diseases. ATTRm amyloidosis is due to variants in theTTR gene, with the substitution Val30Met as the most frequent mutation.TTR mutations lead to destabilization and dissociation of TTR tetramers into variant TTR monomers, and formation of amyloid fibrils, which are consecutively deposi...

AimTo characterize carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in patients with mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I). MethodData were included for patients with MPS I who had either nerve conduction examination that included a diagnosis of CTS or who had CTS release surgery. Although this represented a subset of patients with CTS in the MPS I Registry, the criteria were considered the most objective for data analysis. ResultsAs of March 2016, 994 patients were categorized with either severe (Hurler syndrome) or attenuated (Hurler–Scheie or Scheie syndromes) MPS I. Among these, 291 had a CTS diagnosis based on abnormal nerve conduction (...

Children with Hurler syndrome (HS) develop carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) owing to glycosaminoglycan deposition secondary to enzyme deficiency. Advancement in the treatment of the underlying enzyme deficiency now commonly includes peritransplant intravenous enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). The primary objective of this study was to determine if the use of limited ERT in addition to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) for the treatment of children with HS reduces the incidence of surgical intervention for CTS compared with a cohort of historical controls treated with HCT alone.

In October 2015, a 57-year-old Japanese man presented with a four-month history of slowly progressive neck pain, quadriplegia, and numbness of limbs. He had undergone hemodialysis for 30 years because of Alport syndrome until he received a kidney transplant 10 years previously. Nine years before, he underwent open carpal tunnel surgery for bilateral tunnel syndrome due to dialysis-related amyloidosis. Physical examination revealed a sensory deficit from the C6 dermatome downwards and motor dysfunction in the arms and legs.

Conclusions: FAP encountered in Crete is due to Met30 mutation. Haplotype analysis that is in progress may help elucidate the origin of this mutation in relation to other populations. Orthotopic liver transplantation is the most effective treatment currently available for this disabling polyneuropathy.Disclosure: Dr. Tzagournissakis has nothing to disclose.
