Definitive analysis of hereditary alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency which is associated with pulmonary emphysema, hepatoma and chronic hepatitis. Phenotypes MS and MZ are found in about 10% of Caucasians and are associated with mild to moderate reduction of alpha-1-antitrypsin concentrations. MS and MZ phenotypes are increased in rheumatoid arthritis and chronic or recurrent anterior uveitis. The ZZ phenotype is associated with alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency and predisposes children to early development of emphysema and liver cirrhosis. In adults, the MZ phenotype is associated with hepatoma and chronic hepatitis. Pi typing is a useful test to confirm diagnosis of AAT deficiency.
