Recurrent seizures in an adolescent female-A daunting puzzle
Mohanasundaram Subashri, ND Srinivasa Prasad, Edwin Fernando, Yashwanth T RajIndian Journal of Nephrology 2021 31(1):67-70 Acute porphyrias are metabolic disorders resulting from deficiency of a specific enzyme involved in heme biosynthetic pathway. These deficiencies also affect normal renal physiology, as kidneys are also involved in heme synthesis. Sometimes, this could even lead to end stage renal disease. Acute Intermittent Porphyria, an autosomal dominant disorder arising from half-normal activity of hydroxymethylbilane synthase, is characterized by occurrence of vague neurovisceral attacks (abdominal pain, nausea, ...

However, crystal nephropathy (uric acid, oxalate, and dihydroxyadenine) can present as chronic kidney disease without any evidence of renal stones. If left undiagnosed, there is a potential chance of recurrence in the allograft leading to graft failure after transplantation. Pretransplant identification and management can avoid such complications. Here, we describe a case of APRT deficiency leading to crystal nephropathy and end-stage renal failure in a patient who u...

However, due to lack of reference values in Indian children for FMI obtained by BIA, BIA cannot be used to measure fat in this population. (Source: Indian Journal of Nephrology)
