Rahi Parkia, only daughter of a Surat couple, was diagnosed with Tyrosinemia Type 1, a rare
inborn error of metabolism resulting in elevated levels of tyrosine (an essential amino acid).
Due to this defect, tyrosine is not metabolised in the body and elevated levels affect
multiple organs like liver, nervous system and kidneys. Untreated disease leads to early liver
cancer which is uniformly fatal. Rahi had cirrhosis, portal hypertension, renal tubular
acidosis (kidney damage) and bone deformity accompanied by growth failure. The only possible
lifesaving treatment option for her was a timely liver transplant, Dr Anurag Shrimal,
director, liver, pancreas and intestine transplantation, said
