Morphologic, biochemical and physiologic alterations in a case of idiopathic hypoalbuminemia (analbuminemia).
Analbuminemia: three cases resulting from different point mutations in the albumingene.
Congenital analbuminemia attributable to compound heterozygosity for novel mutations in the albumin gene.
Analbuminemia produced by a novel splicing mutation.
The molecular diagnosis of analbuminemia is based on the identification of the causative mutation.
We describe a novel splicing mutation that is the cause of analbuminemia in a 1-year-old female infant, the 1st child of apparently nonconsanguineous parents, born and living in Bartin (Turkey).
Congenital analbuminemia is attributable to defects in the gene coding for HSA.
In previously reported cases of analbuminemia attributable to aberrant splicing, the consequences of the defect at the mRNA level were not evaluated (13,14).
We describe a novel molecular defect causing analbuminemia in a 5-year-old girl, the first child of a couple from El Jadida, Morocco.
Congenital analbuminemia: biochemical and clinical complications.
The existence of analbuminemia is suspected when persistent unexplained hypoproteinemia is observed, and the diagnosis is confirmed by the absence of an albumin band in the serum protein electrophoresis pattern (3).
In a continuation of our study of this disorder, we report here the molecular defect that is the cause of congenital analbuminemia in four, apparently unrelated, individuals.
Even then, the effects were not marked until albumin concentrations had fallen well below the reference interval for that protein [e.g., in conditions ranging from severe NTI to analbuminemia (7, 58)].
Dye-binding albumin methods would likely be used to initially assess albumin status in undiagnosed patients with analbuminemia. Dye-binding albumin methods have falsely indicated the presence of albumin in analbuminemia in a rat model (17) and in a case report (18); however, few analytical details were reported.
Serum protein electrophoresis performed at 10 weeks (patient DN) and 12 weeks (patient KB) revealed an absence of an albumin band (0-3 g/L), and the diagnosis of congenital analbuminemia was considered.
