SUCCINIC SEMIALDEHYDE DEHYDROGENASE DEFICIENCY


Alternate names

SUCCINIC SEMIALDEHYDE DEHYDROGENASE DEFICIENCY Is also known as ssadh deficiency, 4-hydroxybutyric aciduria, gaba metabolic defect, gamma-hydroxybutyric aciduria

Description

Succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSADH) deficiency is a rare neurometabolic disorder of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) metabolism with a nonspecific clinical presentation (ranging from mild to severe) with the most frequent symptoms being cognitive impairment with prominent deficit in expressive language, hypotonia, ataxia, epilepsy, and behavioral dysregulation.

Most common symptoms of SUCCINIC SEMIALDEHYDE DEHYDROGENASE DEFICIENCY

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Ataxia
