Hypolipoproteinemia

Abetalipoproteinemia


Presentation

  • We present a six-year follow-up of a boy with a novel type of hypolipoproteinemia, with clinical and biochemical features distinct from classical hypoalphalipoproteinemias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • -A new text-specific Web site containing a test package and PowerPoint presentation package helps instructors present the material from the book. -Case studies provide real-world examples of how to use the information in practice.[books.google.com]
  • Invaluable tables summarize the critical factors in etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and therapeutic dosages.[books.google.com]
  • Other forms result in absent or near absent LDL levels and can cause serious symptoms in infancy and early childhood. [1] Treatment for hypoproteinemia varies depending on the underlying cause and signs and symptoms present in each individual.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
Gaucher Disease
  • Lipid metabolism disorders, such as Gaucher disease and Tay-Sachs disease, involve lipids. Lipids are fats or fat-like substances. They include oils, fatty acids, waxes, and cholesterol.[icdlist.com]
Lordosis
  • The muscle problems can disrupt skeletal development, leading to an abnormally curved lower back (lordosis), a rounded upper back that also curves to the side (kyphoscoliosis), high-arched feet (pes cavus), or an inward- and upward-turning foot (clubfoot[icdlist.com]
Eruptions
  • Eruptive xanthoma Eruptive xanthoma 12. Palmar xanthoma Tendon xanthoma 13. Hypolipoproteinemia Abetalipoproteinemia • Defect in synthesis of apo-B Familial lipoprotein deficiency[Tangier disease] • Defect in synthesis of apo-A 14.[slideshare.net]
  • A patient with a history of recurring attacks of pancreatitis, eruptive xanthomas, and increased plasma triglyceride levels (2000 mg/dL) associated with chylomicrons, most likely has a deficiency in A. Lipoprotein lipase B. LDLreceptors C.[proprofs.com]
Tremor
  • They can also experience a loss of certain reflexes, impaired speech (dysarthria), tremors or other involuntary movements (motor tics), a loss of sensation in the extremities (peripheral neuropathy), or muscle weakness.[icdlist.com]
Nystagmus
  • People with abetalipoproteinemia may also have other eye problems, including involuntary eye movements (nystagmus), eyes that do not look in the same direction (strabismus), and weakness of the external muscles of the eye (ophthalmoplegia).Individuals[icdlist.com]
Chorea
  • A-I Milano variant Apo A-I variant fisheye-like syndrome ApoA-I Munster variant 1 ApoA-I Munster variant 2 ApoA-I Munster variant 3 Apolipoprotein A-I deficiency Apolipoprotein A-I variant disorder Ataxia co-occurrent and due to abetalipoproteinemia Chorea[icdlist.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment - Hypolipoproteinemia Supplemental vitamin E helps children with the betalipoprotein deficiencies. There is no known treatment for Tangier disease. Treatment of the causes of the other forms of low blood fats reverses the condition.[checkorphan.org]
  • Treatment : How to Treat "Hypolipoproteinemia"? The treatment of hypolipoproteinemia depends on the specific cause of the condition. For Tangier disease though, there is no known cure.[signssymptoms.org]
  • Treatment with corticosteroids and immunoglobulins improved thrombocytopenia and hypolipoproteinemia. These clinical and biochemical findings differ from those in the known primary and secondary hypo-alpha-lipoproteinemia syndromes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment The treatment of hypolipoproteinemia depends on the specific cause of the condition. For Tangier disease though, there is no known cure. Children with betalipoprotein deficiencies are often given vtamin E supplements.[medigest.uk]
  • In hypobetalipoproteinemia the low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels are very low, yet people with this syndrome typically have no symptoms nor require treatment.[diseaseinfosearch.org]

Prognosis

  • Each contain different proportions of cholesterol, fats, and protein Prognosis - Hypolipoproteinemia Not supplied. Treatment - Hypolipoproteinemia Supplemental vitamin E helps children with the betalipoprotein deficiencies.[checkorphan.org]

Prevention

  • These tests are often done after an overnight fast to prevent interference from fat just being absorbed from food.[checkorphan.org]
  • The patient must fast overnight to prevent interference from fat in the blood due to food intake.[en.wikipedia.org]
