L2HGA - L2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria

L2HGA is a recessively inherited metabolic disorder. The disorder causes high levels of L2HGA which in turn result in neuromuscular symptoms such as seizures starting a young age.

The mutation responsible for this disorder was identified by researchers at the Animal Health Trust in the United Kingdom. As with other recessive disease tests, Vetgen results will provide clear, carrier or affected status.
