Multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD) is a rare autosomal recessive defect of the electron transfer flavoprotein or ubiquinone oxidoreductase, resulting in abnormal fatty acid, amino acid, and choline metabolism, leading to metabolic acidosis, hypoglycemia, "sweaty-feet" odor, and early neonatal deaths. This report presents a child diagnosed with this disease at birth by newborn screening using the mass spectrometer, who died suddenly at the age of 6 months. The echocardiogram revealed pericardial effusion, thickened ventricular musculature, and insufficiency of both the atrio-ventricular valves. The autopsy showed immense cardiomegaly, fatty infiltration, and hypertrophy of the ventricles. This is the first detailed case report of clinico-pathological correlation of MADD in an infant and brings into light a rare form of cardiomyopathy as a differential diagnosis in critically ill patients.
