Fumarase deficiency

Fumarase deficiency (or fumaric aciduria) is an exceedingly rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder in Krebs cycle characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme fumarate hydratase, which causes a buildup of fumaric acid in the urine, and a deficiency of malate. Only 13 cases were known worldwide in 1990, after which a cluster of 20 cases was documented in an inbred community in Arizona. [Source: Wikipedia ]
