Disability
  • Some reports have associated sarcosinemia with various symptoms including intellectual disability and other neurologic problems; growth failure; enlarged liver; cardiomyopathy; vision or hearing problems; and skeletal abnormalities.[malacards.org]

  • Treatment Argininemia is a rare disorder and few patients have been treated from an early age, prior to onset of disabling symptoms.[genico.ch]

Feeding Difficulties
  • Patients appear normal at birth, but begin to have feeding difficulties with vomiting, progressing to lethargy and coma. The infant may have a high-pitched cry and the odor of maple syrup may emanate from the diaper.[genico.ch]
Failure to Thrive
  • Clinical manifestations include poor feeding in an infant with failure to thrive and developmental delays; however, no consistent clinical syndrome has been reported.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • A hereditary disorder of amino acid metabolism, marked by elevated levels of sarcosine in blood plasma and excretion of sarcosine in the urine, failure to thrive, irritability, muscle tremors, and impaired motor and mental development.[yourdictionary.com]

  • Failure to thrive, vomiting, and hypoglycemia may be seen.[genico.ch]
Visual Impairment
  • Symptoms include visual impairment, blindness, cardiomyopathy, cranial synostosis, growth and mental retardation. Sarcosinemia is thought to be caused by a mutation in the sarcosine dehydrogenase gene.[medigoo.com]
  • Aside from visual impairment, patients with gyrate atrophy are for the most part asymptomatic.[genico.ch]

Workup

  • Workup of such patients includes measuring plasma amino acids and looking for succinylacetone on urine organic acid analysis.[genico.ch]

Treatment

  • You may also want to contact a university or tertiary medical center in your area, because these centers tend to see more complex cases and have the latest technology and treatments.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
  • Treatment: Treatment is not needed for this disorder, as the condition is assumed to be benign. Certain corrective treatments are done to correct the disorder, often times done considering factors such as the extent of the disease.[medigoo.com]

  • With appropriate monitoring and therapy, there is a good prognosis for normal development.[genico.ch]

Etiology

  • Etiology Mutations in the gene for sarcosine dehydrogenase, located on chromosome 9q34, have been associated with this deficiency. Genetic counseling It is transmitted in an autosomal recessive manner.[orpha.net]
  • (Etiology) Sarcosinemia is sometimes caused by mutations in the SARDH gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner In some cases, the cause is unknown (Source: Sarcosinemia; Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD ) of National Center[dovemed.com]
  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]

Epidemiology

  • Summary Epidemiology Prevalence has been estimated at 1:28,000 to 1:350,000 in newborn screening programs. Clinical description Sarcosinemia is most probably a benign condition without significant clinical problems.[orpha.net]
