Carotenoids are generally 40-carbon tetraterpenoids responsible for most of the yellow, orange and red colours throughout the natural world. Pro-vitamin A carotenoids serve as the precursors of vitamin A. In addition to that, carotenoids exhibit range of important protective mechanisms in human health. Hypercarotenaemia is characterized by carotenodermia resulting in yellowing of the skin specially palms and soles. Hypercarotenaemia develops in subjects consuming high levels of carotenoid rich foods or β-carotene supplements (>30 mg day-1 ) over a period of months...

We identified children with elevated plasma carotene levels who attended the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow, between July 1998 and April 2001 and carried out a retrospective case record review. Thirty-one children were identified (7 boys; 14 girls) with a median age at presentation of 13 months (range 7m- 11yrs). Twenty-seven (87%) children had simple diet-related carotenaemia and were well. In four cases the hypercarotenaemia reflected nutritional problems with associated failure to thrive. In only one case did the family doctor recognise the condition before referral...

Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a congenital ectodermal disorder that causes erythrokeratoderma, vascularizing keratitis, and neurosensory deafness. We report a form of this syndrome in a patient with no evidence of keratitis. In addition this individual had clinical and biochemical evidence of carotenaemia. Carotenaemia occurring in association with KID syndrome has not been reported previously.

The condition of carotenaemia is harmless but can lead to the mistaken diagnosis of jaundice; it may also be a feature in hypothyroidism. A case of carotenaemia in a baby is reported, caused by an excess of carrots in his mixed feeds, and the diagnostic features are emphasised.

Six children presented with yellow pigmentation of the skin as a result of carotenaemia, and 5 were aged less than 1 year when this was first noted. Serum carotene levels depend on carotene intake, and absorption is promoted if food is of a fine texture. Five of the children were fed a partly homogenised diet. Pigmentation resolved when the carotene intake was reduced. This condition should be suspected, especially in young children, if the skin is yellow while the sclera remains a normal colour.

The usefulness of measuring xylosaemia, carotenaemia and the antigliadin antibodies in the diagnosis and monitoring of coeliac diseases has been examined, 89 children, 57 with aspecific chronic diarrhoea and 32 with coeliachia were examined. The xylose proved less sensitive (80%) and less specific (84.2%) than carotenaemia (respectively: sensitivity 86.6% and specificity 87.7%). Nevertheless, considering the by no means negligible percentage of false positives and false negatives encountered with both techniques, it should be reiterated that these tests have a purely orientative value, whereas measurement of serum AGA may be considered a highly reliable investigation for selective children to be submitted to biopsy, considering the high sensitivity (AGA IgG 100%; AGA IgA 90...

36 patients from 19 families with erythropoietic protoporphyria were treated for about 5 years during the summer months with beta-carotene alone or beta-carotene plus canthaxanthin in daily doses of 50-200 mg. The effect of the treatment was evaluated clinically on the basis of information provided by the patients regarding the period of time they could stay in the sun. 18 patients became completely free of symptoms, 16 patients improved to some extent, and 2 patients noted a slight effect. Apart from the carotenaemia, no side-effects were recorded...
