Course : MOC Part IV: Management of Patients with Urea Cycle Disorders
Urea cycle disorders are characterized by acute and recurrent hyperammonemia. The typical hyperammonemic crisis presentation is a within a few days of life for severely affected infants, however patients of any age can present with hyperammonemia, typically associated with external stressors such as illness, steroid administration, or childbirth. Furthermore, there is increasing awareness of individuals who present in adult years with life threatening hyperammonemia. This Maintenance of Certification Part IV module focuses on patients who have been diagnosed with a urea cycle defect and are being managed during periods of relative stability in the outpatient setting.
