It was a rare, inborn error of metabolism, an autosomal recessively inherited disorder caused by the absence of a single enzyme, galactose-l-phosphate uridyltransferase.
Lack of the enzyme galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase causes an increased amount of galactose in the circulating blood (known as galactosemia).
Classic galactosemia is caused by the near total absence of galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) activity and the resulting accumulation of markedly increased concentrations of galactose and its metabolites.
