We reviewed the outcome of newborn screening for biotinidase deficiency performed at our department since 1987. Among 1,097,894 newborns screened, 461 were recalled, and 18 were identified as affected by complete or partial biotinidase deficiency (incidence 1:61,000, false positive rate 0.04%). The common missense mutation Q456H was found in 80% of patients with profound biotinidase deficiency. Of them, one patient harbored the novel mutation M399I in compound heterozygosity (M399I/Q456H). The complex allele A171T/D444H in cis was found in two patients with profound biotinidase deficiency (in homozygosity and in compound heterozygosity with the R211H mutation, respectively) and in one patient with partial biotinidase deficiency (in compound heterozygosity with the protective allele D444H in trans).All detected patients were treated and followed up at our Center until present. Biotin therapy (10-20Â mg/day) allowed the full prevention of clinical symptoms in all patients with no adverse effects. These excellent outcomes confirm that newborn screening for biotinidase deficiency is a very effective secondary prevention program.
