Disorders for SLC19A2 Gene

  • Thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia syndrome (TRMA) [MIM:249270]: An autosomal recessive disease characterized by megaloblastic anemia, diabetes mellitus, and sensorineural deafness. Onset is typically between infancy and adolescence, but all of the cardinal findings are often not present initially. The anemia, and sometimes the diabetes, improves with high doses of thiamine. Other more variable features include optic atrophy, congenital heart defects, short stature, and stroke. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10391221, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10874303}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
