Treatment for kidney stones depends mainly on stone size. If the stone is small in size, it shall pas  Read More

  • Drummond's syndrome

    Blue diaper syndrome is a rare, genetic metabolic disorder characterized by the incomplete intestinal breakdown of tryptophan, a dietary nutrient. Symptoms typically include digestive disturbances, fever, irritability and visual difficulties. Some children with blue diaper syndrome may also develop kidney disease. Infants with this disorder may have bluish urine-stained diapers. Blue diaper syndrome is inherited as an autosomal or X-linked rec  Read More

Signs and symptoms in babies may include fever, breathing  Read More

  • Tyrosinemia, hereditary

    Tyrosinemia type I is a rare autosomal recessive genetic metabolic disorder characterized by lack of the enzyme fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase (FAH), which is needed for the final break down of the amino acid tyrosine. Failure to properly break down tyrosine leads to abnormal accumulation of tyrosine and its metabolites in the liver, potentially resulting in severe liver disease. Tyrosine may also accumulate in the kidneys and central nervous s  Read More

When using medications that are conjugated by the liver, such as acetaminophen and irinotecan, there is an increased risk of side effects and tox  Read More
