Author information

Department of Psychiatry, Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston.


Choline supplementation has been used with moderate success in subgroups of adult patients with neuropsychiatric and medical problems. The dietary fish oils have also been used in adults with hypercholesterolemia. We report on two young children with multiple neurodevelopmental delays, one who responded to choline and eicosapentaenoic acid, and the other to choline alone. A brief discussion about choline's metabolic pathways and benefits is included.
