Propionic acidemia is an inherited disorder in which the body is unable to process certain parts of proteins and lipids (fats) properly. It is classified as an organic. The spectrum of propionic acidemia (PA) ranges from neonatal-onset to late- onset disease. A number sign (#) is used with this entry because propionic acidemia is caused by mutation in the genes encoding propionyl-CoA carboxylase, PCCA ().

Propionic acidemia

Eye findings include dyschromatopsia, optic atrophy, scotomas, abnormal electroretinogram, propionicca evoked potentials, and optical coherent tomography. Turn recording back on. Several proposed acute and chronic management guidelines have become available in recent years [ Chapman et alSutton et alBaumgartner et al ].

Inthe medical team at Johns Hopkins Hospital in BaltimoreMaryland published the case, calling the disorder ketotic hyperglycenemia. Propionic acidemia PA is an organic acidemia caused by deficiency of propionyl-CoA carboxylase PCCa biotin-dependent carboxylase located in the mitochondrial inner space.

Please consider making a donation now and again in the future. Propionic acidemia PA is caused by deficiency of the mitochondrial multimeric enzyme propionyl-CoA carboxylase that catalyzes the conversion of propionyl-CoA to D-methylmalonyl-CoA.

Neurologic nonmetabolic presentation of propionic acidemia. Late-onset PA can present with a variety of concerns [ Delgado et al ] including:. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us.

In-patient propionnica Assess and manage ventilation and circulation as necessary. A high prevalence rate is noted in certain countries like Saudi Arabia. Increased anion-gap metabolic acidosis. Carrier testing for at-risk relatives and prenatal diagnosis for pregnancies at increased risk are possible if the pathogenic variants in the family are known.

Revision History 6 October ha Comprehensive update posted live. In a study of 17 PA individuals with clinical seizures, all had abnormal MRI findings and a history of more than ten metabolic decompensations [ Haberlandt et al ].

Diagnostic methods Extended newborn screening test identifies PA by detecting an elevated level of propionyl carnitine. University of Washington, Seattle ; Neurologic considerations in propionic acidemia.


The estimated live-birth incidence of PA propinoica 1: View in own window. Two frequent mutations associated with the classic form of propionic acidemia in Taiwan. Offspring of a proband. The authors emphasized the different molecular effects of splicing mutations and the possible phenotypic consequences.

It does not completely protect against a metabolic stroke, hyperammonemia, or metabolic decompensations.

Genetic Counseling Genetic counseling is the process of providing individuals and families with information on the nature, prppionica, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions. Retrieved 6 June Systematic studies of adult individuals with PA are lacking. PCCA is composed of 24 exons.

The deficiency of PCC enzymatic activity profoundly deranges metabolism at several levels. Methylmalonic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency may result in accumulation of 3-hydroxyisobutyric, 3-hydroxypropionic, 3-aminoisobutyric, and methylmalonic acids [ Marcadier et al ]. Increased frequency of miscarriages of affected fetuses is possible [ Ottolenghi et al ].

Confirmation of the diagnosis is not indispensable to start the treatment.
