Özet

Pyroglutamic aciduria (5-oxoprolinuria) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by either glutathione synthetase deficiency (GSSD) or 5-oxoprolinase deficiency. The severe form of the disease, generalized GSSD, is characterized by acute metabolic acidosis, usually present in the neonatal period with hemolytic anemia and progressive encephalopathy.
