SummaryThis case report describes a 31-year-old woman with a neglected ornithine carbamoyltransferase deficiency, admitted for a hyperammonaemic encephalopathy induced by a commercial very low-energy diet. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case and it underlines the potential risk of such a diet in patients with undiagnosed or neglected ornithine carbamoyltransferase deficiency.
