NIH Rare Diseases:41 Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (aflp) is a rare and serious complication of pregnancy. it is characterized by a build-up of fat in the liver, which can lead to liver damage. the cause of aflp is not well understood, but genetics may play a role. symptoms generally begin in the third trimester and may include persistent nausea and vomiting, pain in the stomach or upper-right abdomen, malaise, jaundice and headache. without prompt treatment, aflp can lead to coma, organ failure or death of the mother and baby. treatment involves stabilizing the mother and delivery of the baby. last updated: 8/25/2014
MalaCards based summary: Lchad Deficiency, also known as long chain 3-hydroxyacyl-coa dehydrogenase deficiency, is related to 3-hydroxyacyl-coa dehydrogenase deficiency and hepatitis, and has symptoms including retinopathy, muscular hypotonia and cardiomyopathy. An important gene associated with Lchad Deficiency is HADHA (hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase/3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase/enoyl-CoA hydratase (trifunctional protein), alpha subunit). Affiliated tissues include liver, eye and skin.
Genetics Home Reference:21 Long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD) deficiency is a rare condition that prevents the body from converting certain fats to energy, particularly during periods without food (fasting).
OMIM:45 Isolated deficiency of long-chain 3-hydroxyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized... (609016) more...
