GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID TRANSAMINASE DEFICIENCY Is also known as gaba transaminase deficiency

Description

Gamma-aminobutyric acid transaminase (GABA-T) deficiency is an extremely rare disorder of GABA metabolism characterized by a severe neonatal-infantile epileptic encephalopathy (manifesting with symptoms such as seizures, hypotonia, hyperreflexia and developmental delay) and growth acceleration.

Most common symptoms of GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID TRANSAMINASE DEFICIENCY

  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Hyperreflexia
  • Downslanted palpebral fissures
