Abnormal serum uric acid levels in children.

PMID:  8648529     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Measurement of the serum uric acid level, most commonly considered in adult patients, is frequently obtained inadvertently for pediatric patients because it is a standard component of many multichannel chemistry profiles offered by clinical laboratories. Most standard references for normal uric acid values do not take into account the impact of the metabolic changes in children at different ages on the uric acid level. A substantial number of childhood conditions may produce perturbations in the serum uric acid level. Knowledge of normal serum uric acid levels and of the conditions affecting those levels in children enables a more focused pursuit of underlying abnormalities.
