Homozygosity for disease-causing variants in AMT and GLDC in a patient with severe nonketotic hyperglycinemia.

Nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH) is a relatively well-characterized inborn error of metabolism that results in a combination of lethargy, hypotonia, seizures, developmental arrest, and, in severe cases, death early in life. Three genes encoding components of the glycine cleavage enzyme system-GLDC, AMT, and GCSH-are independently associated with NKH. We report on a patient with severe NKH in whom the homozygous pathogenic variant in AMT (NM_000481.3):c.602_603del (p.Lys201Thrfs*75) and the homozygous likely pathogenic variant in GLDC(NM_000170.2):c.2852C>A (p.Ser951Tyr) were both identified. Our patient demonstrates a novel combination of two homozygous disease-causing variants impacting the glycine cleavage pathway at two different components, and elicits management- and genetic counseling-related challenges for the family.
