Inborn Errors of Metabolism in Neonates

DKK Ng


Abstract

Inborn errors of metabolism should be suspected in those with suspicious family or obstetric history. The commonest presentation in neonates is acute encephalopathy. Arterial blood gases with anion gap measurement, ammonia level, blood glucose, urine for ketone bodies and urine smell as well as negative sepsis screening results are helpful screening tests.
