Glycine encephalopathy is an uncommon autosomal passive issue of glycine digestion. After phenylketonuria, glycine encephalopathy is the second most basic issue of amino corrosive digestion. The ailment is brought about by absconds in the glycine cleavage framework, a chemical liable for glycine catabolism. There are a few types of the infection, with shifting seriousness of indications and time of beginning. The side effects are only neurological in nature, and clinically this issue is portrayed by unusually significant levels of the amino corrosive glycine in organic liquids and tissues, particularly the cerebrospinal liquid. Glycine encephalopathy is some of the time alluded to as "nonketotic hyperglycinemia" (NKH), as a kind of perspective to the biochemical discoveries found in patients with the turmoil, and to recognize it from the scatters that cause "ketotic hyperglycinemia". To maintain a strategic distance from disarray, the expression "glycine encephalopathy" is frequently utilized, as this term all the more precisely depicts the clinical indications of the confusion.
