HYPERAMMONEMIC ENCEPHALOPATHY DUE TO CARBONIC ANHYDRASE VA DEFICIENCY


Alternate names

HYPERAMMONEMIC ENCEPHALOPATHY DUE TO CARBONIC ANHYDRASE VA DEFICIENCY Is also known as ca-va deficiency

Description

Carbonic anhydrase VA deficiency is an autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism characterized clinically by acute onset of encephalopathy in infancy or early childhood. Biochemical evaluation shows multiple metabolic abnormalities, including metabolic acidosis and respiratory alkalosis. Other abnormalities include hypoglycemia, increased serum lactate and alanine, and evidence of impaired provision of bicarbonate to essential mitochondrial enzymes. Apart from episodic acute events in early childhood, the disorder shows a relatively benign course. Treatment with carglumic acid can result in neurologic improvement (summary by van Karnebeek et al., 2014).

Most common symptoms of HYPERAMMONEMIC ENCEPHALOPATHY DUE TO CARBONIC ANHYDRASE VA DEFICIENCY

  • Global developmental delay
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Delayed speech and language development
  • Encephalopathy
  • Acidosis
