Glutathione synthetase deficiency

Glutathione synthetase deficiency is a condition that stops the manufacture of a key molecule called glutathione. Mild glutathione synthetase deficiency causes the destruction of red blood cells, which leads to cell damage. Individuals with moderate glutathione synthetase deficiency may have symptoms that appear right after birth, including hemolytic anemia, 5-oxoprolinuria, and elevated acidity in the blood and tissues. People with moderate glutathione synthetase deficiency may experience neurological problems as a result of their severe condition. Those people with a high glutathione synthetase deficiency may also have persistent bacterial infections.
