What is MGA 4?

  • MGA 4: MGA (methylglutaconic aciduria) is a rare genetic disorder where the body's cells are unable to make sufficient energy resulting in an accumulation in the body of 3-methylglutaconic acid. Type 4 is characterized by symptoms which overlap type 1 and 3.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list MGA 4 as a "rare disease".
