Abstract

Methyl malonic acidemia (MMA) is characterised with poor feeding, vomiting, progressive lethargy, floppiness, muscular hypotonia, dehydration, failure to thrive in infants. Glucose-6-Phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G-6-PD deficiency) is an X-linked enzyme deficiency that leads to either episodic hemolytic anemia or chronic non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. Though both conditions are genetic disorders, they are usually not seen together. We report a 10 month old girl with MMA and G-6-PD deficiency.
