Trifunctional Protein Deficiency With Myopathy And Neuropathy [Supplementary Concept]

An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by decreased activity of 3 mitochondrial enzymes: long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD), long-chain enoyl-CoA hydratase, and long-chain thiolase of the MITOCHONRIAL TRIFUCNTIONAL PROTEIN . Clinically, classic trifunctional protein deficiency can be classified into 3 main clinical phenotypes: neonatal onset of a severe, lethal condition resulting in SUDDEN INFANT DEATH, infantile onset of a hepatic Reye-like syndrome, and late-adolescent onset of primarily a skeletal myopathy. Mutations in the HADHA and HADHB genes have been identified. OMIM: 609015
