Abstract

We report on the seventh known patient with S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (SAHH) deficiency presenting at birth with features resembling phosphomannomutase 2 (PMM2-CDG Ia) deficiency. Plasma methionine and total homocysteine levels were normal at 2 months and increased only after the 8th month of age. SAHH deficiency was confirmed at 4.5 years of age by showing decreased SAHH activity (11% in both erythrocytes and fibroblasts), and compound heterozygosity for a known mutation c.145C>T (p.R49C) and a novel variant c.211G>A (p.G71S) in the AHCY gene. Retrospective analysis of clinical features revealed striking similarities between SAHH deficiency and the PMM2-CDG Ia.
