This excludes, however, patients who already suffered an encephalopathic crisis, for whom the prognosis is more related to the treatment of their acquired disorder striatal necrosis, frontotemporal atrophy.

Asymptomatic infants had reduced glucose tracer uptake and increased blood volume throughout the gray matter, which may signify predisposition to brain injury.

An Esp Pediatr, 4pp. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here. In the other case, there was a marked increase of glutaric acid in the amniotic fluid as well as a deficiency of glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase in cultured amniotic cells.

Glutaric acidemia I is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder characterized by gliosis and neuronal loss in the basal ganglia and a progressive movement disorder that usually begins during the first year of life Goodman et al.

Acute striatal necrosis was the major cause ttipo morbidity and mortality, and dystonia caused chronic medical and surgical complications. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Brain imaging showed increased signals in the lenticular nuclei. J Peddiatr,pp. Despite spastic diplegia and moderate choreoathetosis, he had normal intelligence and regularly worked in a carriage and harness repair shop.

Glutaric aciduria type 1

Recomendaciones del Grupo de Trabajo de Obesidad de la High levels of glutaric acid were seen in the spinal fluid of all these patients. Exome sequencing identifies GCDH glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase mutations as a cause glutaricw a progressive form of early-onset generalized dystonia. Review and report of thirty novel mutations. Elevated glutarylcarnitine can be detected by mass spectrometry in a dried blood spot collected shortly after birth.


Glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase GCDH deficiency GDD is an autosomal recessive neurometabolic disorder clinically characterized by encephalopathic crises resulting in striatal injury and a severe dystonic dyskinetic movement disorder.

Two children died tio a state of hyperthermia. Brain Dev, 15pp. Hum Genet, 4pp. Neural Transm Gen Sect. J Pediatr,pp. National Library of Medicine [8]. CCCC ]. Clinical course, early diagnosis, and prevention of disease in glutaril-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency.

Amino acid metabolism disorders Autosomal recessive disorders. Glutaric aciduria type 1, in many cases, can be defined as a cerebral palsy of genetic origins. It is thus important to investigate all cases of macrocephaly of unknown origins for GCDH deficiency, [2] [3] given the importance of the early diagnosis of GA1.

Depending on the paradigm adopted, GA1 will mostly be managed with precursor restriction or with neurorehabilitation. GA1 causes secondary carnitine deficiency, as glutaric acidlike other organic acidsis detoxified by carnitine.

The metabolic symptoms, such as hypoglycemia and metabolic acidosis, were minimal. Check this box if you wish to receive a copy of your message. The glutaricz was terminated, glutsrica postmortem studies confirmed the diagnosis of glutaric acidemia.

All 12 previously reported patients had a homogeneous phenotype presenting in infancy with debilitating dystonia and choreoathetosis.

Recommendations included a lysine-restricted diet to reduce the accumulation of the neurotoxic metabolites glutaric acid, 3-hydroxyglutaric acid, and glutaryl-CoA deriving from the precursor amino acid lysine; the supplementation of carnitine to prevent secondary carnitine depletion, to facilitate production of the nontoxic C5DC, and to replenish the intracellular free coenzyme A pool; and the intermittent and stepwise intensification of metabolic treatment using a high-calorie, low- or no-protein emergency treatment protocol during putatively threatening episodes such as infectious disease to prevent striatal injury.

We are determined to keep this website freely accessible. If undiagnosed, the initial acute encephalopathic crisis occurs between months, typically precipitated by an intercurrent febrile illness, vaccination or a surgical intervention, and characterized by hypotonia, loss of motor skills and convulsions resulting in bilateral striatal injury with severe secondary dystonia and occasionally subdural and retinal hemorrhage.

The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. We conclude that amino and organic acids in urine should be investigated in all children with progressive macrocephaly of unknown etiology to rule out glutaric aciduria type I. Age at symptom onset predicts severity of motor impairment and clinical outcome of glutaric acidemia type 1. Endogenous catabolism of proteins could be an important route for glutaric acid production. Tryptophan thus lowers in the brain as a result of the protein synthesis enhancement causing circulating tryptophan to lower more than other amino acids[12] and perhaps also competition of large neutral amino acids for transport across the blood—brain barrier through the large neutral amino acid transporter 1 LNAA1.


Chronic subdural hematoma as an initial manifestation of glutaric aciduria type I.


The excessive tone can also be managed with “jolly jumpers” and other aids to the upright stance that do not constrain the child but help him or her gradually tone down the rigidity. Am J Med Gen, 41pp. Mutations in the GCDH’ gene prevent production of the enzyme or result in the production of a defective enzyme with very glutarjca residual activity, or an enzyme with relatively high residual activity but still phenotypic consequences. Report of intronic sequence and of 13 novel mutations causing glutaric aciduria acidurix.

Neuropsychologic testing of 8 of 12 subjects demonstrated receptive language function to be superior to expressive language and motor function, although cognitive functions were less affected than motor functions.
