Homocystinuria is a metabolic disorder. This results from the deficiency of cystathionine beta-synthase. The eyes, central nervous systems, skeletal and vascular systems are all part of clinical pathology.
High levels of homocysteine in the blood increase the risk of one contracting cardiovascular diseases. These high levels have got a toxic effect on the endothelium of arteries. This increases the probability of clotting of blood in the body. Bad cholesterol or low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are thus also increased in the body.
