UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Hereditary folate malabsorption: Rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by impaired intestinal folate absorption with folate deficiency resulting in anemia, hypoimmunoglobulinemia with recurrent infections, and recurrent or chronic diarrhea. In many patients, neurological abnormalities such as seizures or mental retardation become apparent during early childhood, attributed to impaired transport of folates into the central nervous system. When diagnosed early, the disorder can be treated by administration of folate. If untreated, it can be fatal and, if treatment is delayed, the neurological defects can become permanent.
MalaCards based summary: Folate Malabsorption, Hereditary, also known as hereditary folate malabsorption, is related to hemifacial microsomia and craniofacial microsomia, and has symptoms including glossitis, pallor and megaloblastic anemia. An important gene associated with Folate Malabsorption, Hereditary is SLC46A1 (Solute Carrier Family 46 Member 1). Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, bone and bone marrow.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Hereditary folate malabsorption is a disorder that interferes with the body's ability to absorb certain B vitamins (called folates) from food. Folates are important for many cell functions, including the production of DNA and its chemical cousin, RNA.
