Mystery Diagnosis: Cystinosis
The Balancing Act on Lifetime
Cystinosis is a rare, genetic metabolic disease that causes the amino acid cystine to accumulate in various organs of the body. Without specific treatment, children with Cystinosis develop end stage kidney failure at approximately age nine. The availability of cysteamine medical therapy has dramatically improved the natural history of cystinosis, so that well-treated cystinosis patients can live into adulthood.
