  • Autosomal Recessive Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy In A Complex
           Consanguineous Family: The First Cases Series In Indonesia

    • Authors: Nydia Rena Benita Sihombing, Nurin Aisyiyah Listyasari, Sultana MH Faradz
      Pages: 26 - 29
      Abstract: ABSTRACTBackground: Limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a neuromuscular abnormality with clinical heterogeneity and various severity, where over 30 subtypes have been identified. Meanwhile, molecular diagnosis of LGMD is not commonly carried out in Indonesia. We present a large pedigree of familial LGMD, with over 14 years of follow-up.Case Presentation: A 12-year old female patient came with muscle weakness. She had toe walking since age of 6, followed by calf hypertrophy for over three years. Family history revealed complex consanguinity. Her younger sister and her parents’ cousin had similar condition, with the latter was already bedridden.Physical examination results were waddling gait, lordotic spine, and absent deep tendon reflexes. Muscle biopsy showed sign of dystrophic process. Immunoperoxidase staining of some proteins resulted normal. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array in two siblings revealed homozygosity on chromosome 15 containing CAPN3 gene of LGMD2A subtype.Recently, the patient is wheelchair bound and undergoes rehabilitation. Her sister is still able to walk with abnormal gait, while her parents’ cousin had passed away in age 55. From the multiple consanguinity, it could be concluded as autosomal recessive type LGMD.Conclusion: A large family with LGMD from Indonesia was presented with more than 14 years of care. Clinical diagnosis was made based on physical and additional examination, however molecular analysis for establishing definitive diagnosis is still limited. Further studies such as targeted or whole exome sequencing is warranted to elucidate the cause of disease. Long-term evaluation and supportive care, in addition to proper counseling may increase quality of life.

  • Distribution Of CD4+RORg-T Th17 And CD25+ FOXP3+ Treg In Leprosy Patient
           With Reversal Reaction

    • Authors: Renni Yuniati
      Pages: 30 - 33
      Abstract: Background: One of the most common difficulties found in leprosy management is how to manage leprosy reaction, even though MDT has proven to be effective for the patients. Reversal reaction is associated with cell mediated immunity (CMI), consists of T-helper (Th) 1 and Th2 activities. Moreover, subset of CD4+ Th17 and CD25+ FOXP3 Treg were known to have an important role in leprosy’s natural history. Prior study showed a decreasing number of CD25+ FOXP3 Treg and increasing number of CD4+ Th17 in type II reversal reaction (ENL). However, the distribution of Th17 and Treg in type I reversal reaction (RR) has not yet been identified.Objective: To compare the distribution of CD4+ Th17 and CD25+ FOXP3 Treg between RR and ENL patient groups.Method: A total of 50 samples, consisted of 27 samples of reversal reaction (RR) and 23 samples of ENL, were collected. Observation of CD4+ RORg-T Th17 and CD25+ FOXP3 Treg were conducted with immunohistochemistry staining technique using anti FOX-P3 and anti RORg-T. Expression of CD4+ ROR-g Th17 and CD25+ FOXP3 Treg in percentage were analyzed using T-test.Result: There is a significant difference in mean CD4+ ROR-g Th17 and IL17 cell distribution for RR patient group (14.96% and 10.72%) compared with ENL (9.12% and 4.28%). No significant difference were found between mean CD25+ FOXP3 Treg and TGF-β cell distribution in RR patient group (6.12% and 5.44%) compared with ENL group (6.16% and 5.96%).Conclusion: There is a significant increment od CD+RORg-T Th17 and IL17 in RR patients group compared with ENL patients group. however, the distribution of CD25+ FOXP3+ Treg and TGF beta in RR has no significant difference campared with ENL.

  • Phenylalanine and Tryptophan Intake of Hyperactive Children with Autism

    • Authors: Puspito Arum, Dahlia Indah Amareta, Faridlotul Zannah
      Pages: 34 - 36
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Background: Hyperactive is behavior which demonstrates the attitude of more energy than normal behavior. Level of neurotransmitter dopamine and serotonin in the body may be the factor of this disorder behavior.  Level of phenylalanine and serotonin were found high in hyperactive children with autism. Level phenylalanine in the brain shows that it is not changed into tyrosine so dopamine can not be form. Serotonin derived from an amino acid tryptophan.Objective: To understand the association between phenylalanine and tryptophan intake to hyperactivity of  children with autism.Methods: A survey analytic research with cross sectional approach involving 20 subjects. Phenylalanine and tryptophan intake data was collected by Semi Quantitative-Food Frequency Questionnaire (SQ-FFQ), and hyperactivity disorder of children with autism was measured based on DSM-IV guidelines. Results: Eight (40%) children had low hyperactivity, 9 (45%) children had moderate hyperactivity, 2 (10%) children had severe hyperactivity, and 1 (5%) child had very severe hyperactivity. Mean phenylalanine intake was 4899.74mg (±1543.42) with maximum and minimum intake respectively 7735.42mg and 1843.88mg. Tryptophan intake was 1153.91mg (±384.99) with maximum and minimum intake respectively 1953.89mg and 367.69mg. There was significant association between phenylalanine intake (p=0,034; r=0,477) and tryptophan intake and hyperactivity (p=0,026; r=0,492).Conclusion: There is an association between intakes of amino acid phenylalanine and amino acid tryptophan with hyperactivity of autistic children

  • Food Intake and Visceral Fat Deposition are Risk Factors of Incidence and
           Severity of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

    • Authors: Risky Ika Riani, Hery Djagat Purnomo, Siti Fatimah Muis
      Pages: 37 - 45
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Background: Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is abnormalities of metabolism resulting in fat deposition in the hepatocyte occurred in people who do not consume alcohol. Carbohydrate and fat intake, also visceral fat deposition has been studied as a risk factor of NAFLD, however the results remain elusive.Objective: To identity the nutritional and clinical risk factors of the incidence and severity of NAFLD.Methods: This study was done from June to December 2014 in the Dr. Kariadi Hospital Semarang. A case-control group was established comprising 33 patients with NAFLD based on the ultrasonography (USG) criteria (case group) and 34 healthy subject (control group). Carbohydrate and fat intake was assessed by using the food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), visceral fat deposition was measured by body impedance analysis (BIA), and clinical markers were obtained from laboratory data.Results: Carbohydrate intake, fat intake, and visceral fat deposition were risk factors of the incidence and severity of NAFLD (OR=7.8, CI95% 2.43-25.45; OR=5.9, CI95% 2.0-17.57; OR=50.7, CI95% 6.16-418.09) and (OR=0.9, CI95% 1.06-90.58; OR=14.6, CI95% 1.37-156.88; OR=6.6, CI95% 1.17-37.78). Multivariate regression showed that the most important risk factor of NAFLD for the incidence and severity were hypertriglyceridemia (OR=8.7, CI95% 2.20-34.44) and fat intake (OR=48.4, CI95% 2.78-844.1), respectively.Conclusion: High carbohydrate intake, fat intake, and high visceral fat deposition are risk factors of the incidence and severity of NAFLD. Hypertriglyceridemia and fat intake are the most important risk factor of NAFLD incidence and severity, respectively.

  • Association between Hyperglycemia and Prostate Volume in Patients with
           Benign Prostate Enlargement : A Hospital Case-Control Study

    • Authors: Eriawan Agung Nugroho, Rickky Kurniawan
      Pages: 46 - 49
      Abstract: ABSTRACTIntroduction: Prostate is a male organ which might enlarge mostly, either benign or malignant. Hyperglycemia is one of the factor that increase the risk of  benign prostate hyperplasia. There is lack of studies which assessed the relationship between benign prostate hyperplasia and isolated hyperglycemia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between hyperglycemia and prostate volume in patients with benign prostate enlargement in dr. Kariadi Hospital Semarang.  Method: We conducted a retrospective analysis of clinical data which obtained from 640 men between 2010 and 2012 who admitted to the hospital with diagnosis of benign prostate enlargement. By their medical records, these patients were evaluated of their plasma glucose level and prostate volume by trans rectal ultrasound. The  presence  of  hyperglycemia  was  determined  based  on  the  American  Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). Patients have already been diagnosed with controlled diabetes mellitus by an internist. We allocated the subjects into two groups: patients with hyperglycemia and non-hyperglycemia. Logistic regression analysis was used to assess whether hyperglycemia was associated with the increased risk of benign prostate enlargement.Results: Significant difference of prostate volume found between groups. Prostate volume was  significantly greater in hyperglycemia group compared with non-hyperglycemia ones in all sub-groups based on age (in decades). Odds Ratio (OR) in patients with hyperglycemia was 2.25 (95% CI: 1.23-4.11). By non-parametric Spearman test it obtained  Group 1 (P1) p = 0.000 and r = 0.669, group 2 (P2) it obtained p = 0.000 and r = 0.672, group 3 (P3) it obtained p = 0.000 and r = 0.415 which implied strong positive associationConclusion: Hyperglycemia and prostate volume were significantly associated in patients with benign prostate enlargement. Hyperglycemia became a significant risk factor  for  prostate  enlargement  in  patients  with  benign  prostate  enlargement  in dr. Kariadi Hospital Semarang.
