A case of uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase deficiency detected by neonatal screening for galactosaemia.
Med J Aust. 1986 Feb 03; 144(3):150-1.MJ

Abstract

An infant with a deficiency of the enzyme uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase was detected during galactosaemia screening of the Queensland newborn population. No case of epimerase deficiency has been reported previously in Australia and the incidence in our population is unknown. A deficiency of this enzyme is usually quite benign although two cases with a galactosaemia-like syndrome have been reported. This infant is developing normally, both intellectually and physically, in spite of extremely high levels of red blood cell galactose-1-phosphate. The introduction of newer methods of galactosaemia screening in Australia will probably result in the detection of other cases of this enzyme deficiency.
