Abstract

Isovaleric acidemia (IVA) is an inborn error of leucine metabolism that can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Since the implementation, in many states and countries, of newborn screening (NBS) by tandem mass spectrometry, IVA can now be diagnosed presymptomatically. Molecular genetic analysis of the JVD gene for 19 subjects whose condition was detected through NBS led to the identification of one recurring mutation, 932C→T (A282V), in 47% of mutant alleles. Surprisingly, family studies identified six healthy older siblings with identical genotype and biochemical evidence of IVA. Our findings indicate the frequent occurrence of a novel mild and potentially asymptomatic phenotype of IVA. This has significant consequences for patient management and counseling.
