Based on specific evaluation criteria, the disorders were ranked from 1 (highest priority) to 29, with Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MCADD) being first in the ranking and Beta-ketothiolase (BKT) ranking number 29 (ACMG, 2005).
For a few of the disorders, such as Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase deficiency (MCAD), the screening pattern is very specific and diagnosis is simplified; while for others, the elevations may be caused by more than one metabolic disorder.
Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MCADD) [9] leads to the accumulation of octanoylcarnitine (C8) in the blood and can be diagnosed by analysis of the concentration of acylcarnitines by use of tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) (1).
Ten disorders accounted for an estimated 100 or more cases (phenylketonuria, 3-methylcrotonylCoA carboxylase deficiency, medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, Hb SS, Hb SC, Hb S/a thalassemia, congenital hypothyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, galactosemia, and cystic fibrosis).
