Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase / *deficiency
An inherited deficiency of medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase that is characterized by intolerance to prolonged fasting, recurrent episodes of hypoglycemic COMA; medium-chain dicarboxylic aciduria, impaired ketogenesis, and low plasma and tissue CARNITINE levels. The disorder may be severe, and even fatal, in young patients. Germline mutations have been identified in the ACADM gene. OMIM: 201450
