Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a summary of the results of quantitative amino acid analysis in 800 subjects over a three-year period in Al-Sabah Hospital, Kuwait. Thirty-five patients with aminoacidopathy were identified, all but two of whom were the offspring of first-degree consanguineous marriages: nine cases of phenylketonuria, one benign hyperphenylalaninaemia, seven non-ketotic hyperglycinaemia, five tyrosinaemia, five homocystinuria, four citrullinaemia, two cystinuria, one hyperprolinaemia, and one maple syrup urine disease. The clinical and biochemical findings in these cases are described.
