Cystinuria VS Cystinosis - know the difference!

 Hi!


Cystinuria is an AR disorder that is characterized by defective reabsorption of cysteine from PCT.


Cystinosis, on the other hand, is a lysosomal storage disease characterized by accumulation of amino acid cystine.


Note :

Cysteine + Cysteine = Cystine.


Fact :

Cystinosis is one of the most common cause of Fanconi's syndrome in pediatric age group.
