We report the premortem and postmortem morphologic and histologic features and biochemical findings of a patient with long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (L-CHAD) deficiency and compare these with those described in previously reported cases of L-CHAD deficiency. In addition to chronic nonketotic hypoglycemia, hypotonia, and liver failure, this patient had chronic hemolytic anemia and delayed central nervous system myelination. These features have not been previously documented in L-CHAD deficiency.
