Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the successful treatment of a woman with Cobalamin A disease with hydroxycobalamin injections during pregnancy and delivery and 3 months after delivery. Urine and plasma methylmalonic acid levels served to adjust therapy before and after delivery. The mother had no untoward metabolic complications and gave birth to a normal baby.
