Organic acidurias (OAs) are a group of rare metabolic disorders that disrupt the regular amino acid metabolism. OAs are characterized by recurrent episodes of acidemia, ketonuria and hyperammonemia which can result in brain/liver damage and renal failure, and despite the life-long protein-restricted diet, impaired growth and long-term complications can occur. Consequently, a long-term management of OAs patients is required, aimed principally at reducing the frequency and duration of metabolic decompensation/hyperammonemia episodes. Nevertheless, unlike the acute phase, evidence on the chronic management of OAs patients is less consolidated.

Abstract

Organic acidurias (OAs) are a group of rare metabolic disorders that disrupt the regular amino acid metabolism. OAs are characterized by recurrent episodes of acidemia, ketonuria and hyperammonemia which can result in brain/liver damage and renal failure, and despite the life-long protein-restricted diet, impaired growth and long-term complications can occur. Consequently, a long-term management of OAs patients is required, aimed principally at reducing the frequency and duration of metabolic decompensation/hyperammonemia episodes. Nevertheless, unlike the acute phase, evidence on the chronic management of OAs patients is less consolidated.
