Abstract

This study investigated the role of hyperhomocysteinaemia as a risk factor in Sudanese adults suffering from cardiovascular disease or malaria and children with protein-energy malnutrition. Mean total plasma homocysteine levels (micromol/L) were significantly higher in patients with coronary heart disease (17.64; SD 11.68) recurrent venous thrombosis (5.06; SD 10.55) and recurrent malaria (13.61; SD 4.82) than in healthy adult controls (7.85; SD 3.39). The mean homocysteine level was also significantly higher in children with protein-energy malnutrition (8.41; SD 1.61) than in healthy control children (5.72; SD 1.99).
