Tropical endomyocardial fibrosis in Spain

, : Tropical endomyocardial fibrosis in Spain. Anales de Pediatria 78(5): 326-329

Endomyocardial fibrosis is a restrictive cardiomyopathy of unknown etiology prevalent in tropical regions. It is characterized by fibrotic obliteration of the apex of one or both ventricles, which can be extended to the ventricular inlet chamber. It predominantly affects children and young adults. There is no specific treatment and usually has a poor prognosis. It is uncommon in Spain, but due to immigration, it appears to be increasing. Four cases of endomyocardial fibrosis in children diagnosed and treated in Spain are presented, as a well as a review of this disease.

Others have shown that DIDS covalently binds to the first lysine (K) in the motif SKLIK at the extracellular end of transmembrane segment 5 (TM5) of the Cl-HCO3 exchanger AE1. The two lysines in this motif are conserved among the three AEs and two...
