3-Methylglutaconic aciduria is a member of inborn errors of leucine metabolism pathway. 3-Methylglutaconic aciduria type I (MGA1) causes neurological problems which are present during infancy or childhood but the diagnosis may be delayed until adulthood. Here we report a 3Â years old patient with developmental delay from a relative parent's that his medical evaluations include analyses of urinary organic acid and blood acylcarnitine showed high level of 3-methylglutacoic acid, 3-hydroxyisovaleric acid and increased level of 3-hydroxyisovalerylcarnitine respectively. Further evaluation and genetic tests revealed a novel homozygous mutation of variant c.179del G (p.Gly60Valfs*12) in exon 1 of the AUH gene that was compatible with the diagnosis of MGA1. In segregation analysis of his family, both parents were heterozygous for the respective mutation, confirming obligate parental carrier status and segregation of the mutation.
