Draft revision[edit]

this article is organized along draft lines from the Clinical Medicine WikiProject

==Introduction== '''Abetalipoproteinemia''' is a rare [[genetic disorder]] that interferes with the normal absorption of fat and fat soluble vitamins from food. ==Features== This disorder leads to a multiple vitamin deficiency, affecting the fat soluble [[Retinol|vitamin A]], [[vitamin D]], [[Tocopherol|vitamin E]], and [[vitamin K]]. However, many of the observed effects are due to Vitamin E deficiency in particular. ==Diagnosis== The inability to absorb fat in the ileum will result in [[steatorrhea]], or fat in the stool. As a result, this can be clinically diagnosed when foul smelling stool is encountered. Low plasma [[chylomicron]] levels are also characteristic. ==Pathophysiology== Two genes have been identified in which mutations are associated with this disorder: microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTT) and apolipoprotein B (ApoB). There is an absence of betalipoprotein B. On intestinal [[biopsy]], vacoules containing lipid enterocytes are seen. Since, there is no or little assimilation of [[chylomicron]]s, their levels in [[plasma]] remains low. ==Treatment== Treatment with Vitamin E is recommended. ==Prognosis== ==Prevention== ==Epidemiology== ==History== ==References== * [ Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man], OMIM<sup>TM</sup>. Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. MIM Number:[ 200100]:November 13, 1998:.

Support Group[edit]

Der editors of Wikipedia. Would it be possible to have a link to the Facebook support group for Abetalipoproteinemia. This is a rare disease, and it is very difficult to handle for parents and medical staff, so the support group can be important in helping, and therefore I believe it would be a good idea to have the support group linked somehow.

If it is possible to have this group linked, here is the link: This is the main international support group for the disease. I'm sorry the Wikipedia system is confusing for me, so I'm not sure if it can be done?
