Consanguinity, endogamy and inborn errors of metabolism in Oman: a cross-sectional study.

Al-Thihli K1, Al-Murshedi F, Al-Hashmi N, Al-Mamari W, Islam MM, Al-Yahyaee SA. Hum Hered. 2014;77(1-4):183-8. doi: 10.1159/000362686. Epub 2014 Jul 29.

The Sultanate of Oman, like many other Arab countries, has relatively high rates of consanguinity. Reports suggest that the incidence of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) is also high in Oman. A total of 285 patients with IEM were being followed at the 2 centers involved; 162 (56.8%) were male and 123 (43.2%) were female. The history of consanguinity was documented or available for 241 patients. Seventeen patients (6%) had associated comorbid conditions other than IEM.
