Excerpt:"Disorders in which single gene defects cause clinically significant blocks in metabolic pathways are called inborn errors of metabolism. Once considered rare, the number of recognized inborn errors has increased dramatically and they are now recognized to affect 1:1500 children. Many of these disorders can be treated effectively. Even when treatment is not available, correct diagnosis permits parents to make informed decisions about future offspring...."
