Neurological impairment of disorders of purines & pyrimidines
Purines and pyrimidines are essential molecules that are components of vital biomolecules, such as nucleic acids, signalling molecules, coenzymes, as well as energy transfer molecules. This lecture provides an overview of neurological impairment pertaining inborn errors of metabolism of purines & pyrimidines. The clinical spectrum of these disorders is broad, including psychomotor retardation, epilepsy, hypotonia, or microcephaly; sensory involvement, such as deafness and visual disturbances; multiple malformations, as well as muscle presentations. Clinical signs are often nonspecific and, thus, these diseases overlooked. This is likely to be gradually overcome by using sensitive biochemical investigations and next-generation sequencing technologies. Some of these disorders require specific treatments.
