PMID:  10870852     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase (FDPase) deficiency is characterized by episodes of lactic acidemia, hypoglycemia, and ketonuria. Liver biopsy and subsequent enzyme analysis most reliably make the diagnosis. Review of the literature reveals 85 cases. Glycerol intolerance syndrome (GIS) is less well defined. There are only a handful of cases reported. We describe a patient with FDPase deficiency and significant glyceroluria and propose that GIS may be caused by partial deficiency of FDPase.
