Heterozygous FZ alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency associated with severe emphysema and hepatic disease: case report and family study



Heterozygous FZ alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency associated with severe emphysema and hepatic disease: case report and family study



Thorax 44(9): 758-759



A patient with advanced emphysema and cor pulmonale had the changes of alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency in a liver biopsy specimen and was shown to have the phenotype PiFZ. This case supports the contention that the F allele of alpha 1 antitrypsin predisposes to the development of emphysema, particularly when it occurs in conjunction with the Z allele.
