Click here to find the latest Student Discussion Document for August’s Clinical Case Study from David Haarburger, Rudi Renison, Surita Meldau, Roland Eastman, and George van der Watt.

The authors provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section.

  1. What diseases can occur in children that eat an exclusively maize-based diet?
  2. What is the most common inherited cause of a (mildly) elevated homocysteine plasma concentration?
  3. What are the causes of a raised urine 2-methylcitric acid concentration and a raised urine methylmalonic acid concentration?
