Orotic aciduria refers to the presence of excessive orotic acid in the urine detected by appropriate urine tests, the common symptoms include mental or physical retardation and anemia which cannot be cured by vitamin supplements. It is caused by damage to the pathway of pyrimidine biosynthesis. There are two main kinds of Orotic Aciduria, Type I and type II which are both caused by the deficiency of an enzyme which converts orotic acid to UMP. Accumulation of this acid leads to expulsion through urine. This usually appears in infants and affects the mental growth and physical development, besides causing megaloblastic anemia.
