Abstract

Neurophysiologic abnormalities are frequently seen in organic acidemias, but knowledge of the specific changes in the different types of organic acidemias is lacking. We studied electroencephalogram (EEG), visual evoked potential (VEP) and brain-stem auditory evoked response (BAER) in seven children with glutaric aciduria type I (GA1) to assess the neurophysiologic features in this rare inborn error of metabolism.
