CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
G-6-PDH deficiency may cause hemolysis of varying severity. Hemolytic episodes in patients may be caused during medication (sulfonamides, nitrofurantoin, phenacetin, anti-fever medicine, primacine), by infections, acidosis, stress, or even by intake of specific foods (fava). Increased G-6-PDH levels are observed in malignant anaemia, myocardial infarction, hepatic coma, hyperthyroidism, blood loss, megaloblastic anaemia. Diminished levels of G-6-PDH are observed in G-6-PDH deficiency, haemolytic anaemia, infections, septicaemia, diabetic acidosis.
