    1. Acidemia, methylmalonic
     An inborn error of metabolism where amino acids in the body aren't metabolized properly resulting in high levels of the acid throughout the body....read more »
    2. Arginase deficiency
     A very rare urea cycle disorder caused by a deficiency of the enzyme (arginase) needed to convert ammonia to the urea which can then be removed in the urine. The condition leads to excess build-up of ammonia in the body which is toxic to the nervous syste...read more »
    3. Argininosuccinic aciduria
     A rare inherited disorder of the urea cycle characterized by the lack of an enzyme (argininosuccinate lyase) which is needed to remove nitrogen from the body so a lack of the enzyme leads to a build-up of ammonia in the blood....read more »
    4. Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase 1 deficiency
     A very rare inherited urea cycle disorder where the lack of the enzyme carbamoyl phosphate synthetase prevents ammonia from being turned into urea and being excreted in the urine. Excess ammonia builds up in the body which can cause serious complications ...read more »
    5. Citrullinemia I
     A very rare urea cycle disorder where a lack of the enzyme argininosuccinate synthetase prevents ammonia being turned into urea which can then be excreted in the urine. The build up of ammonia in the body can cause harmful effects. The neonatal form of ci...read more »
    6. Citrullinemia I, later-onset
     A very rare urea cycle disorder where a lack of the enzyme argininosuccinate synthetase prevents ammonia being turned into urea which can then be excreted in the urine. The build up of ammonia in the body can cause harmful effects. The later-onset form of...read more »
    7. Citrullinemia II
     A very rare urea cycle disorder involving a deficiency of the transport compound called Citrin. Citrin transports aspartate to where the enzyme argininosuccinic acid synthase can combine it with citrulline to make argininosuccinic acid. The deficiency pre...read more »
    8. Dibasic aminoaciduria 2
     A rare condition where protein intolerance occurs as a result of a defect in the transport of dibasic amino acids through the intestines and kidneys. The amino acids (component of protein) can't be broken down properly and used by the body so it builds up...read more »
    9. Glutaric Aciduria, neonatal form of type II A
     A more serious neonatal form of glutaricaciduria where there is excessive blood and urine levels of glutaric acid and congenital anomalies may be present....read more »
    10. Holocarboxylase synthetase deficiency
     An inherited disorder where the enzymes that use the vitamin biotin are defective....read more »
