Urate nephropathy and renal failure have been reported [36]. , a patient with methylmalonyl CoA mutase deficiency. There was a diffuse pattern of abnormal signal intensity in the cerebral hemispheres and focal areas of abnormal signal in the basal ganglia. , a boy with B12-responsive methylmalonic acidemia of the cbl A type. He had only the initial severe acidotic episode, but his behavior was sufficiently unusual that he had been characterized as autistic. J. revealed increased intensity of T2 signal in the basal ganglia.
