Adenine Phosphoribosyltransferase Deficiency: A Rare Cause of Recurrent Urolithiasis.

Background: Recurrent urolithiasis is troublesome for both patient and clinician, and in most cases, an underlying cause is not found. An important an...

Kidney Disease in Adenine Phosphoribosyltransferase Deficiency.
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency is a purine metabolism disorder causing kidney stones and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The course of nephrolithiasis and CKD has not been well characterized. The objective of this study was to exam

Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency: identification of a novel nonsense mutation.
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency (APRTD) is an under estimated genetic form of kidney stones and/or kidney failure, characterized by intratubular precipitation of 2,8-dihydroxyadenine crystals (2,8-DHA). Currently, five pathologic allelic

Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency: a new genetic mutation with early recurrent renal stone disease in kidney transplantation.
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency, a rare inborn error inherited as an autosomic recessive trait, presents with 2,8-dihydroxyadenine (2,8-DHA) crystal nephropathy. We describe clinical, biochemical and molecular findings in a renal

Febuxostat for the Prevention of Recurrent 2,8-dihydroxyadenine Nephropathy due to Adenine Phosphoribosyltransferase Deficiency Following Kidney Transplantation.
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that results in irreversible renal damage due to 2,8-dihydroxyadenine (DHA) nephropathy. A 28-year-old man underwent living-related kidney transplantation for

Classical xanthinuria: a rare cause of pediatric urolithiasis.
Xanthine dehydrogenase catalyzes the oxidation of hypoxanthine to xanthine and xanthine to uric acid in the final two steps of the purine degradation process. Xanthine oxidase deficiency is an uncommon cause of pediatric urinary stone formation, and

A rare cause of recurrent aortic dissection.
We report the case of a 19-year-old man with a history of Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS), which was diagnosed when he had a Stanford type A aortic dissection. He also had multiple aneurysms including ones in the innominate, right common carotid, and righ

Is adenine phophorybosiltransferase deficiency a still underdiagnosed cause of urolithiasis and chronic renal failure? A report of two cases in a family with an uncommon novel mutation.
We describe two patients that had a history of recurrent renal stones and chronic renal insufficiency. The first case was a 51-year-old man with an adenine phophoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency who was diagnosed only after he had been referred f

[Rare cause of recurrent subileus].
An 85-years-old woman with percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) presented at our emergency unit with repeating abdominal pain and changes in the consistency of the stool. The PEG was placed during a treatment of an oropharynxcarcinoma in the pas
