Abstract

Adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) deficiency manifesting neutral lipid storage disease with myopathy/triglyceride deposit cardiomyovasculopathy presents distinct fat-containing vacuoles known as Jordans' anomaly in peripheral leucocytes. To develop an automatic notification system for Jordans' anomaly in ATGL-deficient patients, we analyzed circulatory leukocyte scattergrams on automated hematology analyzer XE-5000. The BASO-WX and BASO-WY values were found to be significantly higher in patients than those in non-affected subjects. The two parameters measured by automated hematology analyzer may be expected to provide an important diagnostic clue for homozygous ATGL deficiency.
