Donate 5th Annual Dublin Cystinosis Workshop 2019 - 26 & 27 April 2019

How is Cystinosis Diagnosed?

  • Cystinosis can be confirmed by measuring the level of cystine in the white blood cells which is always elevated in a positive diagnosis.
  • An ophthalmologist will make a slit lamp examination of the eyes to check for the presence of crystal deposits on the cornea.
  • Prenatal diagnosis is available for families known to be at risk for having a child with Cystinosis.  Chorionic villus sampling is performed at 8-9 weeks of gestation and amniocentesis is performed at 14-16 weeks of gestation.

Hope will find a cure
