Propionic acidemia is an inherited disorder in which the body is unable to process certain parts of proteins and lipids (fats) properly. It is classified as an organic. The spectrum of propionic acidemia (PA) ranges from neonatal-onset to late- onset disease. A number sign (#) is used with this entry because propionic acidemia is caused by mutation in the genes encoding propionyl-CoA carboxylase, PCCA ().

Wolf and Feldman considered it likely that the pccBC complementation group reflects mutations of the alpha subunit and the pccA group mutations of the beta subunit.
LeuPro which affect heterododecamer formation acidmia result in undetectable PCC enzyme activity and severe phenotype [ Muro et al ].
The concentrations of other amino-acids in the plasma and their modification by the administration of leucine.

High frequency of large genomic deletions in the PCCA gene causing propionic acidemia. Factors predisposing to infectious complications were likely diverse and included bone marrow suppression, immune dysfunction instigated by propionic acid metabolites, indwelling catheters e.
TyrCyshas been detected in apparently asymptomatic or mildly affected children identified through newborn screening in Japan [ Yorifuji et al ]. In a review of inherited metabolic disorders and stroke, Testai and Gorelick noted that patients with branched-chain organic aciduria, including isovaleric aciduriapropionic aciduria, and methylmalonic aciduria can rarely have strokes.
Consistent evaluation of the protein intake, depending on age, gender, severity of disorder and presence of other factors such as intercurrent illness, surgery, level of physical activity, and growth spurts to avoid insufficient or excessive protein restriction.
Propionic acidemia – Wikipedia
Clinical evaluation should include assessment of the following: Early and late complications after liver transplantation for propionic acidemia in children: Hypervalinemia Isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency Maple syrup urine disease. Mode of Inheritance Propionic acidemia PA is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.
Gestational age-related reference values for amniotic fluid organic acids. If prenatal testing acidema not been performed on at-risk sibs, measure urine organic acids, plasma amino acids, and acylcarnitine profile immediately in the newborn period in parallel with newborn screening.
The goal of acute management is to reverse this process through promotion of anabolism and removal of toxic intermediates. PCCB comprises 15 exons. Early detection and treatment has led to a reduction acidemis the mortality rate in the first year of life and improved survival rates in early and mid-childhood but morbidity in terms of impaired cognitive development remains high.
Cardiomyopathy may improve after liver transplantation in some patients [ Romano et al ]. Acrodermatitis enteropathica, hair loss, and cutaneous Candida infections in patients with PA managed with medical foods can be propionca by essential amino acid deficiency and require a re-appraisal of the nutritional management.
Revision History 6 October ha Comprehensive update posted live. These patients are under the risk of severe hyperammonemia during infections that can lead to comatose states.

Intentional infantile ethylene glycol poisoning presenting as an inherited metabolic disorder. Possible causes are numerous and may include the following:.
Most microorganisms implicated were unusual, suggesting an underlying immune deficiency. Instead of being converted to methylmalonyl-CoA, propionyl-CoA is then converted into propionic acidwhich builds up in the bloodstream.
Risk to Family Members Parents of a proband The parents of an affected individual are obligate heterozygotes i. Propionic acidemia in a previously healthy adolescent with acidemua onset of dilated cardiomyopathy. Experience in 30 patients. Variant designation that does not conform to current naming conventions.
Prevention of Secondary Complications Regular monitoring by a biochemical geneticist and a dietitian is necessary to avoid insufficient or excessive protein restriction.
Crystal structure of the alpha 6 beta 6 holoenzyme of propionyl-coenzyme A carboxylase. Family planning The optimal time for determination of genetic risk, clarification of carrier status, and discussion of the availability of prenatal testing is before pregnancy.
See following and Table 3b. The following evaluations are performed at different intervals depending on factors such as age, disease severity, and presence of catabolic stressors; evaluation frequency can range from every three months to annually. Inherited metabolic disorders and stroke part 2: Localisation of enzymic defect in propionicacidaemia. Multiple OXPHOS deficiency in the liver, kidney, heart, and skeletal muscle of patients with methylmalonic aciduria and propionic aciduria.
Barton Childs discovered that his symptoms worsened when given the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, valine, methionine, and threonine. For information on selection criteria, click here. PCCA is composed of 24 exons.
Propioniac letters, bracelets, and emergency information in smartphones help facilitate appropriate emergency care by healthcare providers unfamiliar with propionic acidemia.
Cardiomyopathy can occur as an apparently isolated clinical phenomenon in previously healthy individuals without documented episodes of metabolic decompensation or neurocognitive deficits [ Lee et alLaemmle et al ].
