    Abstract

    Methylmalonic acidemia (MMA) is a heterogeneous disorder, with onset from infancy to adulthood and varying degrees of organ involvement and severity. Cardiac disease is a known lethal complication of other organic acidemias, but has not been associated with MMA. We identified 3 patients with MMA and cardiac disease.
