On April 17, 2018, we had the first meeting, both partners and collaborators, coordinating the role of each nutritionist specialist, ophthalmologist, pediatrician and geneticist; in order to carry out a multidisciplinary management that improves the quality of health in patients diagnosed with Gyrate Atrophy. Also, the administrative management that we will have to accomplish with our objective as Fundación Mexicana de Atrofia Girata was commented.
Talk "Metabolic diseases with ocular manifestations: clinical, molecular and treatment aspects"
This talk was presented by Dr. Rodrigo Matsui Serrano, a retinologist with a high specialty in Chorioretinean dystrophies; Dr. Juan Carlos Zenteno, geneticist specializing in eye diseases; Dr. Leticia Belmont, pediatrician specializing in inborn errors of metabolism.
Taught at the general session of the "FAP Ophthalmological Institute of the Count of Valencia".
Diseases that are part of the group of "inborn errors of metabolism" were made known, are patients who, due to a genetic error, are born without an enzyme, causing different clinical manifestations, among which are ophthalmological diseases that could also develop into cognitive problems, neurological, motor, among others; among which we focus on galactosemia, homocystinuria, cystinosis and girata atrophy. As well as, the proper management that these clinical and molecular pathologies should carry, and the importance of nutritional treatment that helps to reduce the progression of the disease, who experts in innate errors of metabolism are the most appropriate people to take good management .
