Inborn metabolic brain diseases arise from disturbances in body chemistry due to an alteration in the metabolic cycle. A disturbance in the brain’s chemical environment in the form of a deficiency or the buildup of metabolites leading to the spread of toxins can lead to a metabolic disorder, which can be expressed in many forms such as impaired brain development, cerebral palsy and seizures. Inborn metabolic brain diseases can occur in the fetus due to a nutritional deficiency or alcohol use of the mother. Metabolic brain diseases can also be passed on genetically, typically in an autosomal recessive manner, but can also arise from spontaneous mutations in utero. The majority of metabolic brain diseases occur in infants. Treatment for many metabolic brain diseases is still being researched, but many doctors will attempt to restore the chemical balance of the brain in order to reverse the effects of the symptoms.
