Pitfalls in aminoacid and organic acid analysis: 3-hydroxypropionic aciduria.
European journal of pediatrics

Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal Article - Publication Status: ppublish
Pitfalls in organic acid analysis can originate from inadequate methodology, analytical interferences, in vivo interactions and from pre-analytical conditions which often are unknown to the specialized analytical laboratory. Among the latter, ingested food and additives, metabolites of food processing or medications have to be considered. Bacterial metabolites from the gastrointestinal or urogenital system or formed after sample collection can lead to pitfalls as well. An example of such a patient whose urinary metabolites mimic at first glance inherited propionic aciduria is described.
