  • discoloration, elevated levels of carotene and low levels of vitamin A described in fewer than 5 patients to date.[orpha.net]
  • discoloration caused by excess carotenoids in the blood, usually from overconsumption of vegetables that contain Vitamin A (e.g., carrots).[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

Workup

Liver Enzymes Abnormal
  • Liver enzyme abnormalities, however, did not correlate with hypercarotenemia. Transaminitis was also not specific for eating disorders since transaminitis was observed with comparable frequency in the three comparison groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • […] may be markedly elevated in patients with chronic glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome Inborn errors of metabolism - Carotenemia may result from a failure to convert carotene into vitamin A due to an inborn error of metabolism Familial conditions Prognosis[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • In heterozigot forms the survival is longer (about 30 years) and prognosis better. The polygenic forms have a moderate course and a good response to diet [9].[romj.org]

Etiology

  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • They are organised into groups, and further divided into clinical, etiological or histopathological sub-types.[orpha.net]
  • Even if the etiological factor is benign, and the discoloration responds quickly to medications, yellow discoloration indicates that some process or a certain substance may be burdening the body.[symptomscausestreatmentprevention.blogspot.com]

  • However, the pathophysiology of hypercarotenemia is not yet fully understood. Moreover, differences in the amount of subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) in AN patients with the same BMI have been observed recently.[press.mu-varna.bg]
