A disease caused by a deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B1) and characterized by polyneuritis, cardiac pathology, and edema. The epidemic form is found primarily in areas in which white (polished) rice is the staple food, as in Japan, China, the Philippines, India, and other countries of southeast Asia. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)

Shoshin beriberi with vasospastic angina pectoris possible mechanism of mid-ventricular obstruction: possible mechanism of mid-ventricular obstruction. (1/26)

A 73-year-old heavy drinker was admitted to hospital in a state of shock. He had been suffering from frequent angina at rest, causing him to drink more heavily in an effort to overcome his anginal chest pain. He had been drinking hard each day and had not eaten for 4 weeks. His hemodynamic state on admission showed high-output heart failure. Echocardiography revealed hyperkinesis of the left ventricle and mid-ventricular obstruction with peak intraventricular gradients of 30 mmHg. Although no improvement was seen despite administering the maximal dose in catecholamine therapy, his condition improved rapidly after vitamin B(1) was administered. Cardiac catheterization revealed mid-ventricular obstruction with an apical aneurysm. Coronary artery spasm was induced by injecting acetylcholine in the distal site of the left anterior descending artery, which perfused the area of the apical aneurysm. In the present case, both left ventricular hyperkinesis caused by shoshin beriberi and apical myocardial infarction caused by frequent coronary spasms produced mid-ventricular obstruction with an apical aneurysm.  (+info)

Outbreak of beriberi among illegal mainland Chinese immigrants at a detention center in Taiwan. (2/26)

OBJECTIVE: The authors describe an outbreak of beriberi in a detention center in Taiwan and examine risk factors for illness. METHODS: A survey was conducted among a sample of 176 randomly selected detainees. A menu-assisted dietary recall method was used to obtain diet information from nine hospitalized detainees. A probable case patient was defined as an individual who had at least two of the following characteristics: leg edema, weakness of the extremities, poor appetite, and dyspnea. Possible case patients were those who had only one of these characteristics. RESULTS: Of the 176 survey respondents, 19% were classified as probable case patients and 40% as possible case patients. The mortality rate based on probable cases was 1.1%. Body Mass Index (BMI) was negatively associated with illness (p < 0.0001), and length of stay in the detention center was independently positively associated with illness (p < 0.05). The average intake of dietary thiamine among the nine hospitalized case patients who completed three-day dietary recall surveys was 0.49 +/- 0.1 mg/day. After thiamine administration, all symptoms and signs of beriberi resolved. CONCLUSION: This outbreak is a reminder of the importance of ensuring adequate diets for poor, institutionalized, or refugee populations who are unable to supplement their diets.  (+info)

Gene-environment interactions in wet beriberi: effects of thiamine depletion in CD36-defect rats. (3/26)

Selective vulnerability to thiamine deficiency is known to occur between individuals and within different tissues. However, no comprehensive explanation for this has been found, and there are no reports that reproduce the cardiovascular manifestations of human wet beriberi in animals. We hypothesized that the distinction of substrate reliance, namely, the primary dependency on glucose as substrate, could be an underlying factor in the selective vulnerability of thiamine deficiency. In the setting of impaired fatty acid entry, which occurs in CD36-defect rats, substrate reliance shifts from fatty acid to glucose, which would be expected to lead to a susceptibility to thiamine deficiency. Genomic DNA was analyzed for CD36 defects in three cognate strains of rats [spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR)/NCrj, SHR/Izm, and Wistar-Kyoto (WKY)/NCrj], which identified the presence of a CD36 defect in SHR/NCrj rats but not in SHR/Izm and WKY/NCrj rats. Treatment with 2 wk of thiamine-depleted chow on 4-wk-old rats of each of these strains resulted in increased body and lung weight in the SHR/NCrj rats but not in the SHR/Izm and WKY/NCrj rats. The increased lung weight in the SHR/NCrj rats was accompanied with histological changes of congestive vasculopathy, which were not observed in either the SHR/Izm or the WKY/NCrj rats. Thiamine-deficient 12-wk-old SHR/NCrj rats demonstrated increased body weight (305.6 +/- 6.2 g in thiamine-deficient rats vs. 280.8 +/- 9.1 g in control; P < 0.0001), lactic acidemia (pH, 7.322 +/- 0.026 in thiamine-deficient rats vs. 7.443 +/- 0.016 in control; P < 0.0001; lactate, 2.42 +/- 0.28 mM in thiamine-deficient rats vs. 1.20 +/- 0.11 mM in control; P < 0.0001) and reduced systemic vascular resistance (4.61 +/- 0.42 x 104 dyn.s.cm-5 in thiamine-deficient rats vs. 6.55 +/- 1.36 x 104 dyn.s.cm-5 in control; P < 0.0001) with high cardiac output (186.0 +/- 24.7 ml in thiamine-deficient rats vs. 135.4 +/- 27.2 ml in control; P < 0.0019). In conclusion, SHR/NCrj rats harboring a genetic defect of long-chain fatty acid uptake present the relevant clinical cardiovascular signs of human wet beriberi, strongly indicating a close gene-environment interaction in wet beriberi.  (+info)

Cardiovascular complications of parenteral nutrition. (4/26)

During a 3 year period, 1987-1989, we encountered three major complications associated with parenteral nutrition leading to congestive cardiac failure--acute beriberi, right atrial and superior vena caval thrombosis, and fungal endocarditis. Unrecognized, these are invariably fatal. Persistent vomiting from intestinal obstruction led to the development of thiamine deficiency in the patient with beriberi. Recurrent catheter tip sepsis probably accounted for thrombosis and endocarditis in the second and third cases, respectively. These conditions are preventable with careful attention to nutritional replenishment and aseptic technique. In patients with catheter-related sepsis early, repeated blood culture is of diagnostic value. Patients with Staphylococcus aureus catheter-associated bacteraemia require at least 4 weeks of appropriate antibiotic therapy. Recurrent sepsis, especially when associated with pulmonary embolic phenomena, is an indication for echocardiography.  (+info)

ST-segment elevation of electrocardiogram in a patient with Shoshin beriberi. (5/26)

We report a case of a 58-year-old man with Shoshin beriberi who demonstrated ST-segment elevation and myocardial damage without coronary artery stenosis. The patient subsequently recovered with thiamine treatment. We conclude that it is important to consider Shoshin beriberi as part of the differential diagnosis in patients with shock and ST-segment elevation.  (+info)

Histopathological changes of biopsied myocardium in Shoshin beriberi. (6/26)

Cardiovascular beriberi is caused by thiamine deficiency and usually arises for one of two reasons: alcoholism or diet. Shoshin beriberi is a fulminant form of cardiac beriberi. We investigated the histopathological features of biopsied myocardial tissue samples from two patients with Shoshin beriberi (one patient with nonalcoholic beriberi and another patient with alcoholic beriberi). Interstitial fibrosis and a variation in size of the myocardial fibers were the main findings in the sample from these patients after thiamine treatment. These findings are persistent histopathological features in the myocardium of patients with Shoshin beriberi after thiamine treatment.  (+info)

Thiamin deficiency and uncomplicated falciparum malaria in Laos. (8/26)

OBJECTIVE: Thiamin deficiency complicates severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Thailand and may contribute to acidosis. We therefore estimated the frequency of biochemical thiamin deficiency in patients presenting with uncomplicated falciparum malaria in southern Laos. METHODS: Red cell transketolase activation coefficients (alpha) were measured in 310 patients presenting with uncomplicated falciparum malaria and 42 days after starting treatment. RESULTS: Twelve per cent of patients had biochemical evidence of severe deficiency (alpha values >1.31) at presentation, declining to 3% 42 days later. CONCLUSION: Thiamin deficiency was common in Lao patients admitted with uncomplicated P. falciparum infection and was reduced following treatment of malaria and multivitamin supplementation. The role of this preventable and treatable disorder in malaria and other acute infections, and the incidence of beriberi in rural Laos, needs further investigation.  (+info)

This a condition in which Vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine) is chronically lacking in the diet. The typical patient that chronically lacks thiamine is someone who eats polished rice. That is, the outer vitamin-rich husk is removed. Another group that may suffer from beriberi are patients who have undergone bariatric surgery.. There are two types of beriberi- wet and dry. Wet beriberi signs include edema of the extremities. Dry signs are emaciation and peripheral neuropathy. ...

In 1884, Takaki Kanehiro, a British-trained Japanese doctor of the Japanese Navy, observed that beriberi was endemic among low-ranking crew who often ate nothing but rice, but not among crews of Western navies and officers who consumed a Western-style diet. Kanehiro initially believed that lack of protein was the chief cause of beriberi. He conducted one of the first cliical trials using the crews of two battleships; one crew was fed only white rice, while the other was fed a diet of meat, fish, barley, rice, and beans. The group that ate only white rice reported 161 crew with beriberi and 25 deaths, while the latter group had only 14 cases of beriberi and no deaths. This convinced Kanehiro and the Japanese Navy that diet was the cause of beriberi. But Kanehiro wrongly thought that protein was the missing element in the diet (Kwashiorkor, which is caused by protein deficiency also causes heart failure ...
Thiamine deficiency in its early stage induces anorexia, irritability, apathy, and generalized weakness. Prolonged thiamine deficiency causes beriberi, which is classically categorized as wet or dry, although there is considerable overlap. In either form of beriberi, patients may complain of pain and parathesia. Wet beriberi presents primarily with cardiovascular symptoms, due to impaired myocardial energy metabolism and dysautonomia, and can occur after 3 months of a thiamine-deficient diet. Patients present with an enlarged heart, tachycardia, high-output congestive heart failure, peripheral edema, and peripheral neuritis. Patients with dry beriberi present with a symmetric peripheral neuropathy of the motor and sensory systems with diminished reflexes. The neuropathy affects the legs most markedly, and patients have difficulty rising from a squatting position.. Alcoholic patients with chronic thiamine deficiency may also have central nervous system manifestations known as Wernickes ...

The first symptoms of beriberi is weakness or fatigue. It is severe fatigue that is uncharacteristic for a persons level of daily activity or age. It is accompanied by a degree of apathy - lack of interest in life or other activities that were previously enjoyable. Often patients are diagnosed with depression at this point. The patient may be irritable, have difficulty concentrating and experience constant drowsiness.. All of these symptoms appear to further support a diagnosis of depression. A lack of appetite, nausea and abdominal pain are other non-specific symptoms that may be seen in the early stages. The first symptoms may be noticed as early as 1 week after ceasing thiamine intake although there may be small stores still present in the body.. ...

Two patients suffering from cardiovascular beriberi presented with different clinical manifestations. One had the classical features of a high cardiac output with raised jugular venous pressure and gross oedema. The other was in fulminating heart failure with clinical evidence of a low cardiac output but no peripheral oedema. The latter type of beriberi (shoshin) is rare. Cardiovascular beriberi has a high mortality when untreated. Both patients responded dramatically to thiamine, and this emphasizes the importance of considering thiamine deficiency as a cause of heart failure even when the cardiac output is low.. ...

BACKGROUND: A beriberi outbreak occurred in the Maison dArrêt et de Correction dAbidjan (MACA), a detention center in Abidjan, Côte dIvoire, between October 2002 and April 2003. OBJECTIVE: A retrospective investigation was conducted to document the outbreak in April 2003. METHODS: A descriptive analysis and a case-control study were performed. A probable case patient was defined as a person detained in the center between October 2002 and April 2003 with at least two of the following symptoms: bilateral leg edema, dyspnea, positive squat test, motor deficiencies, and paresthesia. A definite case patient was defined as a probable case patient who showed clinical improvement under thiamin treatment. RESULTS: Of 712 cases reported, 115 (16%) were probable and 597 (84%) were definite. The overall attack rate was 14.1%, and the case fatality rate was 1.0% (7/712). The highest attack rate was reported in the building housing prisoners with long-term sentences (16.9%). All patients were male, and the mean
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is usually found in good sources such as brown rice and whole grains. It is believed that this vitamin is important in starting an impulse for the conduction in nerves and its levels can be measured in the blood. Deficiency of thiamine can lead to neurological conditions such as beriberi or a syndrome known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Beriberi is more common in Asia whilst Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is familiar in resource-rich countries. Beriberi can present itself as a dry form, which is an impairment of sensory and motor systems in the arms and legs (nerves dysfunction). The wet form of beriberi involves cardiovascular problems affecting the heart rate and potentially leading to heart failure. Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is commonly seen in resource-rich countries and especially in individuals who suffer from chronic alcoholism. This condition results in a loss of muscle coordination, short-term memory loss and impairment of the normal reasoning and perception. ...

In the latter part of the nineteenth century, a Dutch physician, Dr. Christiaan Eijkman, studied a disease called beriberi, which primarily affects the nervous system. Infectious organisms responsible for many diseases were being discovered almost daily. It was natural to believe that beriberi, too, was caused by microbes. One of Eijkmans first observations, however, was that chickens which ate rice left over by convicts in a prison commonly suffered from beriberi, just as the prisoners did. He later learned that the sick chickens could be cured by feeding them rice husks as well as rice. Although the chickens ate just as much rice as previously, they did not develop the disease. Thus, the illness was not caused by something that was eaten but by ...
After reading an article by the Dutchman Christiaan Eijkman that indicated that persons who ate brown rice were less vulnerable to beri-beri than those who ate only the fully milled product, Funk tried to isolate the substance responsible, and he succeeded. Because that substance contained an amine group, he called it vitamine. It was later to be known as vitamin B3 (niacin), though he thought that it would be thiamine (vitamin B1) and described it as anti-beri-beri-factor. In 1911 he published his first paper in English, on dihydroxyphenylalanine. Funk was sure that more than one substance like Vitamin B1 existed, and in his 1912 article for the Journal of State Medicine, he proposed the existence of at least four vitamins: one preventing beriberi (antiberiberi); one preventing scurvy (antiscorbutic); one preventing pellagra (antipellagric); and one preventing rickets (antirachitic). From there, Funk published a book, The Vitamines, in 1912, and later that year received a Beit ...
A biochemist and a forerunner in the field of nutritional science, Funk discovered that many human diseases are caused by a lack of certain nutrients thatare readily available in some foods. He found cures for such devastating illnesses as beriberi, pellagra, ricketts, and scurvy based on this finding. Funk later did extensive research on hormones.. Funk was born in Warsaw, Poland, the son of a renowned dermatologist. As a young man, he studied organic chemistry at Switzerlands University of Berne, from which he received his Ph.D. in 1904. Afterward, Funk worked at the Pasteur Institute in Paris until 1906, then sporadically at the University of Berlin as an assistant. It was not until 1910, when he accepted an offer to work at Londons Lister Institute of Preventative Medicine, that Funks career as ascientist truly began. In this position, he was assigned to research beriberi, a common illness in the Far East that causes peripheral nerve damage and eventually heart failure. Scientists thought ...

Extensive research has been done over the past two decades looking at the role of oxygen delivery (DO2) and oxygen utilization (VO2) in critical illness. VO2 depends on cardiac output, arterial oxygen content, and the bodys ability to extract oxygen effectively from the blood. Oxygen demand rises in critical illness as the body goes into a catabolic state, and lower VO2 has been associated with higher lactate levels and with poorer outcomes. Although increasing DO2 will often raise VO2, Hayes et al found that a subset of critically-ill patients failed to demonstrate a rise in VO2 in spite of achieving supranormal values of cardiac index (CI) and DO2. This group, in contrast to patients whose VO2 rose with the increase in CI and DO2, had exceedingly poor outcomes, suggesting that an inability to extract oxygen from the blood confers a poorer prognosis.(1). Thiamine deficiency can manifest in several ways, but the syndrome of wet beriberi, caused by thiamine deficiency, includes lactic acidosis, ...

The reduction in the prevalence of beri-beri in some countries, such as Japan, has come about by a general improvement in living standards, which as always has been accompanied by a reduced proportion of cereal in the diet, and an increased proportion of other foods. In addition, some governments have introduced legislation requiring a lesser degree of milling of the rice, but this is not always enforced, and the people still prefer the whiter polished rice they have been used to. Nor has there been much success in persuading people to parboil rice if they have not traditionally used it in this form.

EXPANDED ABSTRACT KEY WORDS: * essential vitamins and minerals * DNA damage * aging * cancer Americans intake of the 40 essential micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and other biochemicals that humans require) is commonly thought to be adequate.
