Abstract

There is a correlation between pregnancy complications such as acute fatty liver of pregnancy and long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase (LCHAD) deficiency. We diagnosed another fatty acid β-oxidation defect, short-chain acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency, in an infant when evaluating him because his mother had acute fatty liver of pregnancy. Other β-oxidation defects, in addition to LCHAD deficiency, should be considered in children born after pregnancies complicated by liver disease.
