Answer

The following other tests may be indicated:

  • ECG: The ECG reveals left ventricular hypertrophy and peaked T waves in primary carnitine deficiency. Cardiac arrhythmias can be observed in translocase deficiency and in the lethal neonatal form of carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPT-II) deficiency.
