We describe a lethal neonatal form of carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPT II) deficiency with compound heterozygosity for 2 truncation mutations (Q413fs and 109AGC → GCAGC). A new phenotype for a severe late infantile form of CPT II deficiency with hypoglycemia is associated with compound heterozygosity for the severe Q413fs mutation and a mild point mutation (P50H).
