hereditary fructose intolerance


hereditary fructose intolerance
an autosomal recessive carbohydrate intolerance with onset in infancy, caused by mutation in the ALDOB gene (locus: 9q22.3), which encodes fructose-bisphosphate aldolase, isozyme B; the resulting enzyme deficiency is characterized by hypoglycemia, with variable manifestations of fructosuria, fructosemia, anorexia, vomiting, failure to thrive, jaundice, splenomegaly, and an aversion to fructose-containing foods. If untreated, it may be fatal. See also essential fructosuria, under fructosuria.
