Vitamin Responsive Disorders

Vitamins are required as cofactors in the catalytic role of numerous enzymes in the body. A number of rare, congenital disorders causing deficiencies of vitamin B12 (cobalamin) and folic acid (folate) in infants and children present as megaloblastic anemia, often with neurological symptoms. Mutations in genes associated with enzymes dependent upon vitamins B1, B6, and B7 (biotin) result in serious neurological presentations such as developmental delays, myelopathy, cerebral atrophy, intractable epilepsy with seizures, and many other issues.
