Unit 09 Metabolic, nutritional & systemic disease

Unit aims:

Ultimately all conditions are metabolic. In this Unit we will concentrate on those disorders determined by primary metabolic disorders, an increasing number of which have been elucidated genetically. We will learn how clinical acumen can increase the suspicion of a neurometabolic disorder. We shall consider the classification of these disorders and how that can help a rational approach to investigation. As usual we shall consider how information on these conditions, often complex can be relayed to the families involved.
