This enzyme is involved in degrading the amino acids lysinehydroxylysine and tryptophan. A possible way to qciduria the build-up of metabolites is to limit lysine and hydroxylysine degradation, as lysine is one of the most abundant amino acids and tryptophan is one of the least abundant amino acids. D ICD – Holmes Mortonthe Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism laureate, is taking care of patients affected with GA1 and other metabolic diseases in this community in his Clinic for Special Children.

Glutaric aciduria type 1

Subsequent evaluation revealed increased urinary glutaric acid and compound heterozygosity for mutations in the GCDH gene. Metabolism of radioactive glutaryl-CoA was deficient in white cells, a result compatible with inherited deficiency of glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase Goodman et al.

Glutaric aciduria type I misdiagnosed as Leigh’s encephalopathy and cerebral palsy. Glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency in Spain: Hum Genet,pp. High risk screening, neonatal screening and a diagnosis of macrocephaly were the ways to identify bearers of the GCDH’ defective gene who weren’t frankly symptomatic. Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory.


However, spasticity can be worsened by constraint. Inborn error of amino acid metabolism E70—E72 The human glutaryl CoA dehydrogenase gene: J Inherit Metab Dis. High levels of glutaric acid were seen in the spinal fluid of all these patients.

Review and report of thirty novel mutations. About one-fourth of the patients never suffered encephalopathic crisis but presented with subacute motor delay.

Retrieved from ” https: There had been no apparent progression of his neurologic disease since the single damaging illness at age acidudia months. Dystonia and dyskinesia in glutaric aciduria type I: Type I glutaric aciduria, part 1: Glutaric aciduria tipe I: Among 64 unrelated patients with glutaric acidemia type I, Biery et al.

For a similar metabolic condition, see Glutaric acidemia type 2.

However, there had been little progression of the neurologic disorder after age 5 years in the surviving children, and intellect was usually preserved even in children with severe spastic paralysis.

All had a unique pattern of frontotemporal atrophy on computerized tomography CT. It is much more common in the Amish community and glutarifa the Ojibway population of Canadawhere up to 1 in newborns may be affected.

Summary Epidemiology Ripo prevalence is estimated at 1 inbirths. All but 1 had severe impairment of psychomotor development and abnormalities on T2-weighted MRI, chiefly bilateral hyperdensities of basal ganglia, atrophy of the temporal lobe, or extensive white matter hypodensities. Glutaric aciduria type I and related cerebral organic acid disorders.


Glutaric acidemia type I GA-1 is a neurological disease of metabolic ethiology. While the OMIM database is open to the public, users seeking information about a personal medical or genetic condition are urged to consult with a qualified physician aciduuria diagnosis and for answers to personal questions.


Unfortunately, it is not free to gluatrica. 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 hipo 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.

Orphanet: Aciduria glutarica tipo 1

Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work. Prenatal testing can be performed by genetic and GCDH enzyme analysis of chorionic villi sample or through measuring GA levels in amniotic fluid in at-risk families. Other search option s Alphabetical list.

Endogenous catabolism of proteins could be an important route for glutaric acid production. Glutaric aciduria type I: The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.
