  • Glycogen Storage Disease due to GLUT2 Deficiency

    ; Fanconi syndrome with intestinal malabsorption and galactose intolerance; Pseudo-Phlorizin diabetes; Glycogenosis Fanconi type; Glycogen storage disease XI; GLUT2 deficiency[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Mutations were also found in patients with atypical clinical signs such as intestinal malabsorption, failure to thrive, the absence of hepatomegaly, or renal hyperfiltration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] .5,6,7,8,9 Case Report: A 18 month old female child (Fig.1), second born of a non consanguineous marriage was brought to us with complains of failure to thrive, abdominal[journalofpediatriccriticalcare.com]

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    We describe a case of flucytosine malabsorption in a pediatric patient with Shwachman syndrome, a rare disease in the pediatric age group characterized by pancreatic insufficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency results in failure to thrive, growth retardation, and chronic steatorrhea.[orpha.net] Shwachman syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by insufficient absorption (malabsorption) of necessary nutrients due to abnormal development of the pancreas ([rarediseases.org]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia

    BACKGROUND & AIMS: Abetalipoproteinemia and Anderson's disease are hereditary lipid malabsorption syndromes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diarrhea, failure to thrive, acanthocytosis and central nervous system complications are most important features.[symptoma.com] Lipid buildup in enterocytes reduces their capacity to absorb lipids from ingested food and thus yields a lipid malabsorption syndrome.[pathwaymedicine.org]

  • Wolman Disease

    In infants, poor weight gain, massive hepatosplenomegaly, calcified adrenal glands (present about 2/3 of the time), vomiting, diarrhea and failure to thrive are indicative[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Affected infants show signs of lipid storage in most tissues, including hepatosplenomegaly, abdominal distension, vomiting, steatorrhea, failure to thrive, and adrenal calcifications[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The complete deficiency of LAL is responsible of Wolman disease (WD), a severe systemic disease manifesting in the first days of life with vomiting, diarrhea, failure to thrive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Celiac Disease

    Both diseases may present the intestinal malabsorption syndrome and similar clinical manifestations that contribute to difficulties with clinical distinction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In young children, gastrointestinal presentations are common and include chronic diarrhea, failure to thrive, and abdominal distention; however, extraintestinal manifestations[doi.org] These include the typical malabsorption syndrome (classic symptoms) and a spectrum of symptoms potentially affecting any organ or body system (nonclassic symptoms).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Celiac Disease

    Shwachman syndrome - a malabsorptive syndrome caused by pancreatic insufficiency. Bone marrow hypoplasia and frequent respiratory and skin infections are also observed.[medicalhomeportal.org] "Celiac disease presentations are highly variable and should be at least considered with many different symptoms, including abdominal pain, failure to thrive/weight loss and[foxnews.com] […] heartburn Hepatitis – elevated liver functions Pain and bloating Ulcers – mouth, esophageal, stomach, upper small intestine Vomiting CD can be confused with Irritable Bowel Syndrome[childrensnational.org]

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    The most common symptoms of malabsorption syndrome are diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, cramping and weight loss.[web.archive.org] Herein, we describe a 14-year-old girl who presented with anemia, failure to thrive, osteoporosis, zinc, and vitamin deficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is called failure to thrive. The child may not grow and develop normally.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    As a result, the main symptoms are watery diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, chronic malnutrition, and death, if the patient is not properly treated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Protracted postnatal postprandial vomiting with progressive failure to thrive was noted. A laparotomy showed the small bowel was only about 20 cm in length.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A six-week-old boy presented with chronic diarrhea and failure to thrive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Malabsorption of Folic Acid

    […] in malabsorption syndrome.[encyclopedia.com] Infants with hereditary folate malabsorption experience feeding difficulties, diarrhea, and failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive).[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Original Investigations 62 Downloads 42 Citations Abstract A Turkish girl presented with a history of fever, diarrhoea, convulsions, recurrent infections and failure to thrive[link.springer.com]
