Very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase is a newly characterised enzyme in mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation. A girl who presented on the second day of life with a sudden and severe illness due to deficiency of this enzyme is reported. There is evidence that some children (and perhaps all) originally diagnosed with a deficiency of long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, in fact, have a defect involving very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
