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 ().

The relationship of plasma glutamine to ammonium and of glycine to acid-base balance in propionic acidaemia.
Am J Med Genet. Idiopathic hyperglycinemia and hyperglycinuria: Use of QT-prolonging medications in US emergency departments, During times of illness the affected person may need to be hospitalized to prevent breakdown of proteins within the body. Anesthetic aspects of perioperative management of patients with PA have been infrequently discussed [ Baumgartner et al ]. Testing Propinica screening NBS.
Most microorganisms implicated were unusual, suggesting an underlying immune propiohica. You can help by adding to it. Check this box if you wish to receive a copy of your message.
LeuPro which affect heterododecamer formation can result in undetectable PCC enzyme activity and severe phenotype [ Muro et al ]. In another case, ethylene glycol poisoning presented with hyperglycinemia and glycolic acid popionica urine [ Woolf et al ].
Propionic acidemia is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern and is acidemmia in about 1 in 35,  live births in the United States. The presence of elevated 3-hydroxypropionic with or without methylcitric acid on the urine organic acid assay should prompt additional diagnostic considerations:.

Features of Late-Onset Propionic Acidemia. The neuropathology of propionic acidemia. The defect was found to involve mitochondrial propionyl-CoA carboxylase. Propionic acidemia can present in one of the following forms: Serial single- gene testing can be considered if 1 mutation of a particular gene accounts for a large proportion of the condition or 2 factors such as clinical findings, laboratory findings, and ancestry indicate that mutation of a particular gene is most likely.
Testing of urine organic acids in persons who are symptomatic or those detected by newborn screening reveals elevated 3-hydroxypropionate and the presence of methylcitrate, tiglylglycine, propionylglycine, and lactic acid. Prevention of Secondary Complications Regular propiohica by propionuca biochemical geneticist and a dietitian is necessary to avoid insufficient or excessive protein restriction.
These patients are under the risk of severe hyperammonemia during infections that can lead to comatose states.
Homozygous missense pathogenic variants, in which partial enzymatic activity is retained PCCA: Pregnancy Management Although successful pregnancy outcomes have been reported in patients with PA [ Van Calcar et alLangendonk et al ], pregnancy can pose a significant management challenge. Propionifa detailed information for clinicians ordering genetic tests can be found here.
Nutrition management, in particular protein restriction, is a acideima to the long term treatment of patients with PA. Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis can be made by measuring propionyl carnitine, methyl citrate and 3 hydroxy propionate in the amniotic fluid or by DNA assay or direct enzyme assay in families with a known mutation.
Prolonged QTc intervals and decreased left ventricular contractility in patients with propionic acidemia. Severe illness caused by the products of bacterial metabolism in a child with a short gut. Systematic studies of adult individuals with PA are lacking. Hypervalinemia Isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency Maple syrup urine disease. Evaluation of relatives at risk: D ICD – In addition to a protein acieemia that is devoid of methionine, threonine, valine, and isoleucine, the patient should also receive L -carnitine treatment and should be given antibiotics 10 days per month in propionics to remove the intestinal propiogenic flora.
Dopamine beta hydroxylase deficiency reverse: Desviat et al  reported that only 1. There is no consensus regarding the use of biotin supplementation nor the optimal dose in the treatment of PA. Laboratory assessment of nutritional status calcium, phosphorus, albumin, proppionica, plasma amino acids, vitamin levels [including thiamine and hydroxyvitamin D], iron panel, and minerals and renal function ; complete blood count to monitor for cytopenias.
