Abstract

Background. Glutaric Aciduria Type 3 (GA-3) is a rare metabolic disease which is inherited autosomal recessively and characterized by isolated glutaric acid excretion. To date, a limited number of cases have been reported in the literature. We present two patients with GA3 who were diagnosed with the isolated increased level of glutaric acid in urine.
