Name
Cystic fibrosis (CF)
Description
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder of the exocrine glands caused by mutation of CFTR gene which encodes an ABC transporter for salt homeostasis. CF is a common lethal single-gene disorder in Caucasians with an incidence of 1 in 1500 to 1 in 6500, whereas it is rare among Orientals (1:90000). The common clinical features are chronic pulmonary infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, respiratory distress, and pancreatic insufficiency. A part of patients with CF present with a gastrointestinal blockage known as meconium ileus.
