Table 1: Enzyme levels
S-gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (U/L)
S-Alkaline phosphatase (U/L)
The S-GGT reference level = 5 -50;
The S-AP reference level = 0 -275.
This report presents a patient who during
exposure to 2 -methylaminoethanol developed prolonged haematuria,
pathologic liver functions tests, and multiple skin warts. No
information could be found in the literature, explaining this unusual
combination of illness and symptoms.
Human injuries have been reported after
inhalation. In animal testing, repeated exposures might cause liver
degeneration and nephritis. 2 -methylaminoethanol could also act as a
precursor for choline. In animals, alteration of lipid metabolism and
development of fatty liver has been observed after a choline deficiency.
There was no information found on whether exposure to 2
methylaminoethanol interferes with regular choline functions. There is
some evidence that mammalian tissues can produce PMMEA
(phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine) and PDMAE
(phosphatidyl-dimethylethanolamine) directly from their corresponding
aminoalcohols by a base exchange type reaction. It has been indicated
that either these phospholipids or the enzymes may be responsible for
their formation and could thus be involved in the process of message
transmission across biological membranes (references cited in the
original paper). However, there is no apparent explanation for the
manifestation of multi-organ disease and its possible relation to the
