CONCLUSION: High rates of glucose suppressed neonatal lipolysis in this infant, but did not seem sufficient to avoid secondary carnitine deficiency as in severe forms of CATR. Therefore simultaneous use of insulin and glucose may be necessary to control neonatal lipolysis. Carnitine supplementation and the possible adverse effects of MCT systematically administrated, should be further assessed in patients with CATR.
