3 Possible Causes for Attention Deficit Disorder - in Those Who Stop Treatment, Defective Myelin Formation if Left Untreated, Maternal Teratogenic Hyperphenylalaninemia

  • Classical Phenylketonuria

    Abstract Indirect measurements have previously suggested that patients with classical phenylketonuria (PKU) do not convert significant amounts of phenylalanine to tyrosine. Low-dose continuous infusion techniques employing [2H5]phenylalanine and [2H2]tyrosine were used to quantitate in vivo phenylalanine[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phenylketonuria

    Consideration should also be given to other teratogenic causes, such as maternal diabetes mellitus, alcohol abuse, or use of isotretinoin.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] […] suggestive of maternal PKU, such as congenital heart disease, microcephaly, and suggestive facial dysmorphic features without a known cause, should undergo blood testing for hyperphenylalaninemia[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
