Diagnosis of alpha-mannosidosis
Diagnostic testing. Not available for carrier detection.
Alpha-mannosidosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder caused by reduced or absent acid alpha-mannosidase enzyme activity.
For an individual clinically suspicious for an oligosaccharidosis and with a positive screening result (OLIWB / Oligosaccharidoses Screen, Leukocytes or OLITC / Oligosaccharidoses Screen, Fibroblasts) suggestive of alpha-mannosidosis, determining enzymatic activity is the next step of the diagnostic workup.
This test cannot be used to establish carrier status for alpha-mannosidosis.
