Within the framework of knee arthroscopy, the diagnosis of ochronosis was made and later confirmed by histopathological biopsy. The alkaptonuria is caused by a homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase deficiency and leads to an accumulation of …

    Dermatol Online J 2019; 25(4)Sánchez-Martínez EM, García-Briz MI, … Mateu-Puchades A
  • Endogenous ochronosis (EO) or alkaptonuria is an inherited autosomal recessive disease caused by the insufficiency of the enzyme homogentisic acid dioxygenase. This disturbance causes an accumulation and increased renal excretion of homogentisic acid (AHG), which manifests as dark urine when it oxidizes on contact with air. Other clinical manifestations of OE are the result of the deposit of AHG …
