Abstract

Propionic acidemia usually presents in the newborn period with severe metabolic acidosis and lethargy. A 31-year-old man with adult onset chorea and dementia had propionic acidemia due to propionyl CoA carboxylase deficiency. Metabolic investigations may prove useful in patients with movement disorder of unknown etiology.
