abstract

  • Central nervous system malformations have been reported in a number of inherited enzyme defects. Ethylmalonic encephalopathy, an organic aciduria of unknown pathogenesis, has not been reported previously in association with brain or spinal cord malformations. We report on 2 sibs with confirmed ethylmalonic encephalopathy and malformations of the central nervous system; one with tethered cord, the other with cerebellar tonsillar ectopia (Chiari I malformation).
