Congenital defects of carbohydrate metobolism
CLASSICAL GALACTOSEMIA Defective enzyme: Galactose-1- phosphate uridyltransferase (incidence 1:40,000) Mechanism: Accumulation of galactose- 1-phosphate causes intracellular ATP depletion and very toxic for liver, kidney and brain.
Clinical findings: Progressive symptoms after start of milk feeds. Usually starting on the 3rd and 4th day. Vomiting, diarrhea, jaundice, disturbances of liver function tests, death from severe liver and renal failure, sepsis (especially by E. Coli), bilateral cataracts (due to galactitol accumulation)
Diagnosis Low galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase activity (Beutler test) High galactose and galactose-1-phosphate levels (N: mg/dL) in serum or erythrocytes. Renal tubular damage: Generalized aminoaciduria, albuminuria, Reducing substances in urine (Fehling or Benedict test) due to glucosuria and galactosuria.
Therapy: Lactose-free and galactose restricted diet throughout life. Keep galactose-1-phosphate levels under 5mg/dL. Complications: Mild mental retardation, ataxia, tremor; gonodal dysfunction, disturbed pubertal development (especially in girls)
Galactose Galactose-1P Glucose Galactitol galaktokinase Galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase epimerase EPIMERASE DEFICIENCY Most of the cases are asymptomatic. Symptomatic cases like classical galactosemia.
HEREDITARY FRUCTOSE INTOLERANCE Defective enzyme: Aldolase B (incidence 1:20,000) Mechanism: Accumulation of fructose-1- phosphate causes intracellular ATP depletion and very toxic for liver, kidney and brain.
Clinical findings: Symptoms after weaning or supplementary feeds. Vomiting, apathy liver dysfunction with hepatomegaly, hypoglycemia (inhibition of glycogenolysis) renal tubular dysfunction, distribution of liver function tests, failure to thrive, aversion to fructose containing foods/sweets, no caries.
Diagnosis: Clinical symptoms with fructose loading (dangerous!); positive effect of withdrawing fructose; enzyme studies. Renal tubular damage: Generalized aminoaciduria, albuminuria, Reducing substances in urine (Fehling or Benedict test) due to glucosuria and galactosuria. Therapy: Strict fructose restricted diet throughout life.

Cystic fibrosis-Genetics Cystic fibrosis gene is localized in the long arm of 7th chromosome (7q31.2). Cystic fibrosis gene codes cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR). There are more than 600 mutations. The most frequent mutation is delta-F508, 70-80% in USA and 30% in Turkey) Incidence: 1:2500 in Caucasians, less frequent in Orientals where cholera is endemic. Incidence in Turkey is not known, but presumed to be high.
PATHOGENESIS CTFR is inserted in the cell membranes and has the properties of ion channels. In cystic fibrosis cAMP-dependent chloride channels that regulate the water secretion and sodium channels regulate the water reabsorption are defective.
Apical membranes of epithelial cells of exocrine glands are impermeable to chloride, and secondarily sodium and water. Additionally epithelial cells reabsorb excessive amount amounts of sodium and secondarily water. Decreased water secretion and increased water reabsorption (dehydrated secretions) lead obstruction, cysts and fibrosis in the exocrine glands (bronchial tree, pancreatic duct, gastrointestinal glands etc) with the exception of sweat gland.
In sweat glands, chloride secretion and thereby the water secretion is normal in the secretory coil. On the other hand sodium and secondarily chloride reabsorption by the ductus is decreased. Therefore excessive amounts of salt are lost in the sweat (chloride levels are more than 60 mEq/L).
Kistik fibroz: Patogenez
CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS The most life threatening clinical features of CF, are pulmonary obstruction and infections. Thick mucous secretions are associated with chronic obstructive lung disease predominantly involving the small airways. Recurrent and persistent infections with Pseudomonas aeroginosa and cepecia (virtually diagnostic) and Staphylococcous lead to bronchiectasis and respiratory failure, often accompanied by cor pulmonale and death
CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS In 80-90% of the patients exocrine pancreatic deficiency causes steatorhea and failure to thrive. In 10-20% of the patients, meconium ileus occurs in the neonatal period. Failure to pass meconium in the first hours of life. Abdominal roentgenograms show dilated loops of bowel with a collection of granular ground- glass material in the lower central abdomen.
CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS Excessive lost of salt in the sweat leads hyponatremic dehydration in young children especially during high environmental temperature. Secondary hyperaldosteronism causes hypopotasemia and metabolic alkalosis (Pseudo-Bartter syndrome). 10% of patients diabetes mellitus develops, especially after the age of ten.
CRITERIA FOR DIAGNOSIS OF CYSTIC FIBROSIS Typical pulmonary manifestations and/or Typical gastrointestinal manifestations and/or A history of cystic fibrosis in the family plus * Sweat chloride concentration >60mEq/L and/or * Pathologic CTFR mutation on both chromosomes.
NEONATAL SCREENING Most of the patients with CF can be identified by determination of immunoreactive tripsinogen in blood spots (Guthrie card). This test is neither sufficiently sensitive nor spesific for CF. This test is not valid after the age of three months (Serum tripsinogen levels decrease during progressive pancreatic damage).
Pulmonary therapy The objective of pulmonary therapy is to clear secretions from airways and to control infections Chest percussion + postural drainage Bronchodilators: ß-sympathomimetic agents, teophylline Expectorants: Are not effective, curcumin may be helpful (stimulation of Cl channel) %3-7 NaCl inhalation
Antibiotic therapy Aerosol and/or intravenous: (Pseudomonas is more difficult to treat and rarely is eradicated) Pseudomonas aeroginosa: amikasin, gentamycin, tobramycin, netilmycin, imipenem Staphylococcous aereus: voncomycin, oxacillin
Nutritional therapy High caloric diet (150% of normal calorie) without fat restriction Pancreatic enzyme replacement Fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K) supplementation
