What is Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency?

  • Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency: A rare disorder where the body lacks enzymes needed to convert some fats (medium-chain fatty acids) into energy and hence these fats build up in the body and cause damage.

Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency, or a subtype of Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
