Title: Life-Threatening Haemolysis Induced By Henna in a Sudanese Child with Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency
Author: Kheir, Abdelmoneim E M.; Gaber, Israa; Gafer, Sara; Ahmed, Wisal
Abstract: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is the most common enzymopathy in humans affecting about 400 million people worldwide (1,2). It is an X-linked recessive inborn error of metabolism which can result in haemolysis on exposure to a number of triggers, such as some infections, and certain medicines and foods. The Mediterranean mutation is the most common variant of the enzyme deficiency and is often associated with favism (3). Severe haemolytic episodes may result after contact with oxidants (4).
